Summary
"When John Quincy Adams spoke of a 'critical period' in his commencement address at Harvard College in July 1787, he justified later historians in their use of the phrase. The young graduate said that the problems facing America in this critical period demanded public faith, and he argued that a country's greatness is related to the maintenance of its credit. That young Adams was undergoing a critical period of his own in these years may be seen in his private history. It is a story of trial and error and controversy in the life of a young man on his way to greatness. Only a few months after making his nationalistic commencement address he became opposed to the federal plan for national reform itself. (When reminded of this long afterwards, he was to label it a lesson in humiliation.) Several years later his controversial newspaper writings on the 'rights of man' were to help precipitate political factions on a nation-wide scale. Other of his early writings supported a distinctively American viewpoint on the turbulent subject of foreign affairs"--Preface, page 7
