A Mirror For Greatness: Six Americans, hardcover book (with dust jacket) by Bruce Bliven. No signs of damages. Copyright is 1975, isbn 0070059047

What is the measure of greatness? And where is it to be found? A book for the present that looks to the past, A Mirror For Greatness portrays the strength and force of character of six heroic Americans who shaped our nation.
In these graceful, compassionate, and utterly fascinating biographies, Bruce Bliven creates a composite national character as seen though periods of great conflict and danger to the Republic. Benjamin Franklin, the self-made man, is seen as a pioneer in breaking class barriers; John Adams, the embodiment of the Protestant work ethic; Jefferson, the first American democrat and a multisided genious; Sojourner Truth, spokeswoman for all victims of injustice based on color or sex; Emerson, the American scholar who broke the bonds of Old World deference; Thoreau, conservationist and creator of the counterculture.
Bruce Bliven not only examines each of these lives in their individual historical context, but brings them into a contemporary focus in a thought-provoking epilogue on the measure of greatness.
