The Baron of Beacon Hill: A biography of John Hancock by William M Fowler

John Hancock belongs to that nearly mythical assemblage, the Founding Fathers, and his bold signature across the Declaration of Independence has placed him among the most famous of that legendary group. Indeed, the very renown of his signature has tended to obscure his position as one of the most extraordinary politicians in American history.Hancock was born in Braintree, Massachusetts, in 1737. When his father died in 1744 after a short illness, seven-year-old John was sent to live with his childless Uncle Thomas, a prosperous merchant in Boston. John attended Boston Latin School and later Harvard, where he was an indifferent student, and then joined his uncle as an apprentice in the world of commerce. At the age of twenty-seven, when his uncle passed away, he became one of the richest men in the American colonies.Boston was a town filled with men of political ambition, yet Hancock soon became the most prominent of them all. From his mansion atop Beacon Hill, he managed to dominate the politics of Boston and of Massachusetts for nearly thirty years.He was an active, if sometimes covert, participant in the events leading to the Revolution. And as President of the Second Continental Congress he knew, and was known by, all the important people of his day.The Baron of Beacon Hill is more than the biography of a great man. It also tells the story of eighteenth-century Boston and of the birth of the American republic. Vivid and immensely readable, it captures both the unique character of its subject and the excitement of his times.WILLIAM M. FOWLER, JR., received his Ph.D. from the University of Notre Dame and is now Associate Professor of History at Northeastern University in Boston. In addition to his numerous articles for magazines and newspapers, he has written two other books—William Ellery: A Rhode Island Politico and Lord of Admiralty and Rebels Under Sail, a dramatic account of the American navy during the Revolution. He and his wife and daughter live in Reading, Massachusetts.

King Faisal: A Life by James Edmonds

Faisal bin Abdul Aziz, the third king of Saudi Arabia, was born in a mud house in a small desert village and died as one of the most powerful men on the planet. His reign marked the Kingdom’s transition, in barely two generations, from the Middle Ages to the 20th century. Devout and cautious, Faisal brought gradual change to his nation without eroding its traditions and Islamic value system. Saudis recall his reign as a golden age – when an infrastructure was built, welfare services established and hardliners in the religious establishment were kept in check. American support for Israel led Faisal to institute the 1973 oil embargo, bringing an end to the era of cheap energy and dramatically transforming Saudi society. His death left a void, one which his successors have filled with an overdose of religion. Saudi Arabia and the world are still suffering the consequences.
