This scholarly biography contains 20 Illustrations, with detailed descriptions of each page plate of the portraits,cartoons, maps, and woodcuts. Fanklin dominated the political, scientific, religious, and mercantile world of his time. His example "defined the principles of the bourgeousie". The great shift of the age was dropping the assumption that "titled nobility" was somehow necessary.

Professor Fay provides proof of Franklin's role. This evidence is critical today to give the lie to those contemporary plutocrats who attempt to distort the ideas of this Founder. He despised slavery, but not Southern folks. He despised religious intolerance, but not spiritual believers. He did not carry a gun nor did he think assassinating public servants was a way to protect liberty.
