Vida, pasión y muerte de Alexander Hamilton is the product of the author’s interest for the divulgation of a historical character, which was a crucial point in the constitution of the United States of America, but he is not very known in Spain and for Spanish readers. Hamilton participated in two crucial aspects within the birth of the American nation: its politic organization and its first economical project as an independent country. As Secretary of the Treasury and person of confidence of President Washington he faced conflicts that still exist nowadays such as the dilemma between centralism and federalism or the use of the National Debt and the Federal Bank as tools for the political economy, and gave them active solutions. The title of this book is also an allusion to the short and intensive Alexander Hamilton’s personal life, which was interrupted by a tragic duel. This novel is very expressive as far as it concerns the conflict between reason and passion during the transition from the Illustration to the Romantic period, which was the dawn of the Contemporary Age.
