About the Author

Richard Brookhiser is the author of What Would the Founders Do?; Founding Father; Alexander Hamilton, American; and America's First Dynasty: The Adamses, 1735-1918. The writer and host of the critically acclaimed PBS documentary Rediscovering George Washington, he is a columnist for Time magazine and a senior editor of National Review. He has also written for the New Yorker and the New York Times. Brookhiser lives in New York City.


"Smart...As historian, Mr. Brookhiser understands the varied standards and qualities of the American experience and interprets its growth with skill and understanding. And as journalist, he performs a key service: joining the ideals and episodes together, defining the theme that makes the United States exceptional."―Wall Street Journal

"[Brookhiser] writes today with the same assurance, intelligence, clarity and directness that characterized his first cover article for National Review."―Washington Times

"Subtle, economic, and gripping...[An] original reflection on the nature of our American experiment, the work of a man who has for many years immersed himself in the minds of those who forged our freedom."―Michael Knox Beran, National Review

"Brookhiser grounds his spirited argument for American exceptionalism in the idea of liberty...An engaging history of admirable episodes from America's past."―Kirkus

"An elegant and lyrical case for the ideal that has shaped America."―Mona Charen

"A collection of profiles that should ignite the spark of national pride and patriotism. Give Me Liberty is an exceptional study of America's 'exceptional idea.'"―Roanoke Times

"Rather than offering a polemic...Brookhiser uses history to make his case...An important text."―Winston-Salem Journal

"In our deeply divided America, Richard Brookhiser goes back in search of our roots, and finds them in that many-headed idea called 'liberty.' In his signature style, he wastes no words, defies the conventional political categories, and invites us to join him in recovering a series of inspirational moments when we all felt the same future in our hearts and minds."―Joseph J. Ellis, author of American Dialogue: The Founders and Us

"With his characteristic combination of elegance and shrewdness, Richard Brookhiser gives us another insightful account of what makes us the nation we are. Give Me Liberty is intellectual history at its riveting best."―H.W. Brands, author of Heirs of the Founders and Dreams of El Dorado
