Book Hour: The Return of George Washington, 1783-1789 with Pulitzer Prize Winner Edward J. Larson


There are many books about General Washington of the Revolutionary War and First President George Washington but what about the six years between his military resignation and Presidential inauguration? The events in his life formed many of his attitudes and, ultimately, formed a nation. One can be certain America was on an unsustainable path during this interval and Washington experienced many of these pitfalls. He knew his prior inclinations toward states’ rights must evolve into a stronger Federalist position but how did he do it when he was out of power? What were his relationships with Hamilton, Jefferson, Madison, and others. Listen to Pulitzer Prize-winner Edward J. Larson explain some of the many facets of his remarkable new book.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
