Summary expansion
<div>When John Quincy Adams&mdash;the sixty-three-year-old former president, U.S. senator, secretary of state, and diplomat&mdash;was elected to the House of Representatives by his Massachusetts neighbors, he embarked on a spectacular late-life career.<p>He became Congress&#8217;s most acerbic and influential critic of slavery as well as a tireless proponent for human freedoms and First Amendment rights. This remarkable congressional career utterly transformed him, the public&#8217;s perception of him, and his legacy&mdash;in many ways redeeming his failed presidency. <i>Mr. Adams&#8217;s Last Crusade</i> renders an insightful portrait of a man who placed his country above politics.</p></div>
