520    In this book, Edith B. Gelles asserts that Abigail Adams' 
       vivid, insightful letters are "the best account that 
       exists from the pre to the post-Revolutionary period in 
       America of a woman's life and world." Adams' spontaneous, 
       witty letters serve dual purposes for the modern reader: 
       it provides an intriguing first hand account of pivotal 
       historical events and it shows how these events from the 
       Boston Tea Party to the War of 1812 entered the private 
       sphere. Included in the book is a chronology, notes and 
       reference section and a selected bibliography. This book 
       will be a must for all scholars of American literature, 
       history and politics seeking to understand this literary 
       figure
