"Washington's Farewell Warning : The Founding Father's Warning to Future Generations". By John Avlon. ISBN-13-978-1476746470. Copyright 2018. Softcover 368 pages.

In Washington’s Farewell, John Avlon offers a stunning portrait of our first president and his battle to save America from self-destruction.

George Washington’s Farewell Address was a prophetic letter he wrote to his fellow citizens and signed from a “parting friend,” addressing the forces he feared could destroy our democracy: hyper-partisanship, excessive debt, and foreign wars. In it, Washington called for unity among “citizens by birth or choice,” advocated moderation, defended religious pluralism, proposed a foreign policy of independence (not isolation), and proposed that education is essential to democracy. He established the precedent for the peaceful transfer of power.
