Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Combining firsthand scholarship and material drawn from the Jefferson Papers, Willard Sterne Randall calls on his skills as an investigative journalist to challenge long-held assumptions about the reasoning, motives, and works of this sage, philosopher, politician, and romantic. Exploring both Jeffersons interior and public struggles, Randall sheds important light on Jeffersons thoughts on slavery and his relationship with the slave Sally Hemmings, as well as Revolutionary and diplomatic intrigues.

Drawing on extensive research, Willard Sterne Randall presents a stirring biography that Publishers Weekly hailed as "a masterful . . . portrait that brings us closer to Jefferson than any previous biography".

Synopsis:

The highly praised one-volume biography of Thomas Jefferson that provides illuminating new insights into his public and private life--by the award-winning author of A Little Revenge: Benjamin Franklin at War with His Son and Benedict Arnold: Patriot and Traitor.

Description:
