This book is great. Combs gives a lot of excellent background to the Jay Treaty situation. After reading a few biographies taking place at the turn of of the 18th century, and all referencing this treaty as pivotal, I thought I should get some more clarification on what the deal was. Combs walks you through all the major player's possible motivations, the financial aspects on all the countries involved, and discusses in detail the provisions of the treaty.
