This Republic ePub and PDF Available
I received this book free through Goodreads' First Reads program.

This book is primarily a review of John Adams' ideas and reasoning in choosing a republic as the best form of government, including those for which he was involved in writing a Constitution (i.e. Massachusetts and the United States). It draws a great deal of the 56 pages of primary content from The Works of John Adams, Volumes IV, V, and VI (Thoughts on Government, Defence of the Constitutions, etc.). It also includes Thoughts on Government, by John Adams, as the first appendix, and the Constitution of the United States of America as the second appendix (a short reading list makes up the third). While it occasionally cites works other than those about or by John Adams, those citations are few and do little to demonstrate any historical conflict in these areas.

For the most part, this may be easier to digest than the original material, though in large sections of the book most of the content is quotations of John Adams' works. This may be of use for a high school student looking for added depth in this particular area, but not yet interested in going to original sources (or reading the several hundred pages John Adams wrote on this and other subjects related to the structure and purpose of government).
