The Cost of Liberty: The Life of John Dickinson

“Makes a powerful and convincing case for restoring John Dickinson to his rightful place in the first rank of the Founders.” —The Washington Times 

'“A brisk, admiring biography.” —The Wall Street Journal “[We should] be grateful that the veteran journalist William Murchison has chosen to employ his incomparable pen and vivid historical imagination in the cause of bringing back to life one of the most underrated and misunderstood of the Founders.” —The American Conservative “Dickinson is perhaps the most neglected and least understood of the Founders of our nation. This book is truly a must read.” —Forrest McDonald, University of Alabama, author of Novus Ordo Seclorum “The Cost of Liberty is a delightful book—lively, warm, amusing, and intelligent. It brings a brave and wise man splendidly back to life.” —Richard Brookhiser, author of James Madison “This biography will stand for the ages.” —John Willson, Hillsdale College “The Cost of Liberty is a gem.” —Bill Kauffman, author of Forgotten Founder, Drunken Prophet “It is hard to think of a Founder more deserving of a second and third look than the admirable Dickinson.
