Democracy: An American Novel by Henry Adams
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


An instant bestseller when first published in 1880, "Democracy" is the quintessential American political novel. At its heart is Madeleine Lee, a young widow who comes to Washington, D.C., to understand the workings of power. Pursued by Silas Ratcliffe, the most influential member of the Senate, Madeleine soon sees enough of power and its corrupting influence to last her a lifetime.
