"Barlow deserves fresh biographical treatment, and no one is better qualified than Buel to do the job. His book will certainly take its place among the most important and authoritative biographies on the Founders."

"Buel's Joel Barlow is the first biography in two generations, and the best. No earlier biographer has given nearly as detailed and rich a portrait of Barlow's perhaps singularly expansive role in the cultural life, commerce, politics, and intrigue of the age of revolution."

"Thoroughly researched and well writen, Buel's work is a refreshing addition to the scholarship on the defining era of the US. A must for any historian of the early republic, Joel Barlow conveys the American spirit of persevering through difficult times while remaining truly a humanitarian. Essential."

"Buel's work... is admirable in scope."

"The luminous strengths of this biography are the new facts and sources that Buel elucidates as well as their contextualization within the historical period that Barlow lived."
