Summary
"In this biography of America's most brilliant and cosmopolitan Founding Father, Joyce Chaplin considers all of Franklin's work in the sciences. Franklin was the first American whose "genius" for science qualified him as a genius in political affairs. It is only through grasping Franklin's full engagement with the sciences that we can understand this great Founder and the world he shaped."--Jacket
