It was a contest of titans: John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, two heroes of the Revolutionary era, once intimate friends, now icy antagonists locked in a fierce battle for the future of the United States. The election of 1800 was a thunderous clash of a campaign that climaxed in a deadlock in the Electoral College and led to a crisis in which the young republic teetered on the edge of collapse. Adams vs. Jefferson is a gripping account of a true turning point in American history, a dramatic struggle between two parties with profoundly different visions of how the nation should be governed.

Professional reviews

"The complex relationships of President John Adams, President Thomas Jefferson, Jefferson's Vice President Aaron Burr, former Washington Cabinet member Alexander Hamilton, and various others have been explored anew in a surfeit of recent books. This one is a rich tapestry of interwoven lives and great events. Enhanced by Jack Garrett's warm-voiced, deliberate narrative, the book gives the listener a real sense of what Adams, Jefferson, and Burr were like as individuals. Hamilton was a master manipulator whose plans sometimes went awry. Burr was an unscrupulous schemer, Jefferson a scrupulous schemer, and Adams mostly disdained scheming. Throughout, the clarity of Garrett's enunciation never drags--to the listener's benefit. D.R.W. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
