John Quincy Adams (1767-1848) is among the most overlooked presidents in U.S. history even though his progressive values helped shape the course of the nation.
In a discussion of his new book, John Quincy Adams: American Visionary, Fred Kaplan sheds light on a leading abolitionist and fervent Federalist who championed both individual liberty and the government's role in driving progress and prosperity. Adams' forward-thinking values, definition of leadership, and vision for the future are as much about 21st century America as his own time.
