John Quincy Adams's long diary (late 1780s-mid 1840s) offers a unique perspective on the history of the early republic. For the first time, David Waldstreicher and Matthew Mason produce an edition of the diary that is not only of accessible length but also focused on one central issue: the politics of slavery.
