QUOTES  OF THE WEEK 

From Reviews of Henry Wiencek's An Imperfect God: George Washington, His Slaves, and the Creation of America, which has recently won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for History. 

  The New York Times

In his revisionist new book about Washington, Mr. Wiencek examines the first president's own dawning comprehension of what slavery entailed. And the process of fathoming Washington's moral evolution is not a simple one. As the least candid of Founding Fathers ("then, as now, no one could quite tell how he made up his mind about something," Mr. Wiencek writes), he did not leave the kinds of diaries or letters that have made John Adams, Thomas Jefferson or Benjamin Franklin such hits as historical subjects. But Mr. Wiencek, threshing and all, rises to the challenge of turning Washington's very furtiveness into a source of fascination. Janet Maslin 
 

The Washington Post

this book nevertheless succeeds in laying bare the monstrous cruelty of the slave system, showing how it stained, corrupted and victimized free and unfree alike. He chronicles not only the indignities and horrors imposed upon those in bondage, but shows how slavery destroyed opportunities for free craftsmen and how slaveowners lived anxiously under the shadow of potential slave insurrections. This book should be read by all who are interested in Washington. It must be read by all who wish to understand early America. John Ferling
