Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Henry Adams was born in 1838. He was an American novelist, journalist and academic. Adams was born into one of America's most prominent political families with both his grandfather and great grandfather being U S presidents. After attending Harvard Adams went on a grand tour of Europe. On his return he became his father's personal secretary and accompanied him to London. On returning to the US he settled in Washington working as a journalist and then becoming a professor of Medieval History at Harvard. The Education of Henry Adams was a prizewinning autobiography, which recounted the struggle Adams had in his old age to come to grips with the dawning of the 20th century. The book also critiques the 19th century educational practices. After Adams died in 1918 the book was published for the general public.
