Read the story of the Founding Father who inspired the smash Broadway musical. Born in the British West Indies and orphaned as a child, Alexander Hamilton made his way to the American Colonies and studied to become a lawyer. He joined a local militia during the American Revolution, rose to the rank of Major General, and became the chief aide to General George Washington. After the war, he became the first U.S. Secretary of the Treasury. He founded the Bank of New York and The New York Post newspaper. He served as a delegate to the Constitutional Convention and is also celebrated as a co-author of The Federalist Papers, a series of essays that are still used today to interpret the U.S. Constitution.

Summary:

A New York Times Bestseller, and the inspiration for the hit Broadway musical Hamilton! Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ron Chernow presents a landmark biography of Alexander Hamilton, the Founding Father who galvanized, inspired, scandalized, and shaped the newborn nation. In the first full-length biography of Alexander Hamilton in decades, Ron Chernow tells the riveting story of a man who overcame all odds to shape, inspire, and scandalize the newborn America. According to historian Joseph Ellis, Alexander Hamilton is “a robust full-length portrait, in my view the best ever written, of the most brilliant, charismatic and dangerous founder of them all.” Few figures in American history have been more hotly debated or more grossly misunderstood than Alexander Hamilton. Chernow’s biography gives Hamilton his due and sets the record straight, deftly illustrating that the political and economic greatness of today’s America is the result of Hamilton’s countless sacrifices to champion ideas that were often wildly disputed during his time. “To repudiate his legacy,” Chernow writes, “is, in many ways, to repudiate the modern world.” Chernow here recounts Hamilton’s turbulent life: an illegitimate, largely self-taught orphan from the Caribbean, he came out of nowhere to take America by storm, rising to become George Washington’s aide-de-camp in the Continental Army, coauthoring The Federalist Papers, founding the Bank of New York, leading the Federalist Party, and becoming the first Treasury Secretary of the United States.Historians have long told the story of America’s birth as the triumph of Jefferson’s democratic ideals over the aristocratic intentions of Hamilton. Chernow presents an entirely different man, whose legendary ambitions were motivated not merely by self-interest but by passionate patriotism and a stubborn will to build the foundations of American prosperity and power. His is a Hamilton far more human than we’ve encountered before—from his shame about his birth to his fiery aspirations, from his intimate relationships with childhood friends to his titanic feuds with Jefferson, Madison, Adams, Monroe, and Burr, and from his highly public affair with Maria Reynolds to his loving marriage to his loyal wife Eliza. And never before has there been a more vivid account of Hamilton’s famous and mysterious death in a duel with Aaron Burr in July of 1804. Chernow’s biography is not just a portrait of Hamilton, but the story of America’s birth seen through its most central figure. At a critical time to look back to our roots, Alexander Hamilton will remind readers of the purpose of our institutions and our heritage as Americans. “Nobody has captured Hamilton better than Chernow” —The New York Times Book Review Ron Chernow's new biography, Grant, will be published by Penguin Press in October 2017.

Summary:

Church (1866-1936) comme son contemporain Gantt (1861-1919) sont des auteurs et acteurs majeurs des premiers temps du management. Ils sont tous deux des théoriciens de l’organisation et leurs travaux dépassent très largement le domaine de la comptabilité et du contrôle de gestion. Mais, et c’est pourquoi ils sont réunis ici, nous nous en tiendrons à un aspect quantitativement modeste de leur œuvre, qui les rapproche et qui fait d’eux des auteurs comptables importants. Un enjeu comptable du management, en début du XXe siècle, est la connaissance d’un coût complet de production, sinon d’un véritable coût complet. Les salaires et la matière (prime cost) entrant dans une fabrication laissent de côté une composante appelée à devenir de plus en plus importante: une juste quote-part du coût des matériels de plus en plus complexes et chers utilisés, et aussi une part des coûts créés par l’organisation même de l’usine. Les coûts indirects de production ne peuvent plus être ignorés. Pour ne pas évoquer les frais administratifs et commerciaux, dont le poids ira aussi grandissant, comme Church le remarque en 1901, en raison de « l’habitude grandissante de vendre directement au consommateur ». Mais on sait que ceux-ci n’entrent pas dans l’évaluation du coût des produits finis ou en cours, ce sont des coûts de période, c’est-à-dire des coûts destinés à être supportés par les ventes et le résultat de leur période de survenance. En revanche l’enjeu de l’analyse des coûts indirects de production est bien réel, et les comptables en sont conscients. Dès 1886, lorsque le capitaine Metcalfe, organisateur du Watervliet Arsenal de Troy, supposé être le premier auteur d’un manuel de comptabilité analytique aux États-Unis, tient une conférence de présentation devant l’association des ingénieurs mécaniciens de New York, il explique que ces coûts sont imputés, dans l’atelier de fonderie, au prorata des tonnes produites mais qu’en général il utilise l’heure de main-d’œuvre comme clé de répartition. En 1901, Church s’attaque à son tour au problème. La répartition des frais de production indirects au prorata des salaires est, selon lui, la plus employée, en raison de sa simplicité. De même le fait de ramener les coûts indirects à un taux horaire de machine, sauf si le processus est uniforme et porte sur une production stable. Pour Church, la seule bonne solution est de renoncer à de telles moyennes pour entrer dans le détail du processus concret et ana- lyser chaque poste de travail...

Summary:

A graphic novel biography of the American legend who inspired the hit Broadway musical Hamilton. Alexander Hamilton was one of the most influential figures in United States history—he fought in the Revolutionary War, helped develop the Constitution, and as the first Secretary of the Treasury established landmark economic policy that we still use today. Cut down by a bullet from political rival Aaron Burr, Hamilton has since been immortalized alongside other Founding Fathers such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson—his likeness even appears on the ten-dollar bill. In this fully-illustrated and impeccably researched graphic novel-style history, author Jonathan Hennessey and comic book illustrator Justin Greenwood bring Alexander Hamilton’s world to life, telling the story of this improbable hero who helped shape the United States of America.

Summary:

Of all of the Founding Fathers of the American republic none, with the possible exception of Thomas Jefferson, has evoked more passions and aroused more controversy than Alexander Hamilton. In this absorbing new biography, eminent historian Lawrence Kaplan examines Hamilton's conception of America's role in the world and the foreign policies that followed from his vision. Kaplan looks at how Hamilton acted upon his views in shaping the course of American foreign relations. The author provides a focused, accessible biography of Hamilton and a nuanced assessment of his impact on Federalist Era foreign policy. In the Jefferson-Jackson era Hamilton's persona as an elitist urban aristocrat condemned him as an enemy of an expanding democratic America-an Anglophile at a time when Great Britain was the major adversary. Such was his reputation as an enemy of the common man that his deep-seated opposition to the institution of slavery won little recognition from northern abolitionists. This book will fascinate readers with its insights into Hamilton and the formative years of the United States of America.
