Über diesen Titel


These letters, written to one of our most revered presidents and published to coincide with the 250th anniversary of his birth, provide a window into the life of a new nation and its people, offering vivid sketches of the writers, their families and the often precarious circumstances of their existence. Illustrations.

From Library Journal:

Editor McLaughlin has collected and briefly comments upon unsolicited letters from the American public to Jefferson during his presidency (1801-09). Uncovering this material while researching his recent Jefferson and Monticello: The Biography of a Builder ( LJ 4/15/88; an LJ "Best Book of 1988"), McLaughlin contends that these previously unpublished letters reflect the social history of the laboring class. He divides the book into sections about politics, patronage, literature, debt and justice, inventions, health, and letters from youth, women, lunatics, and lovers. Though he has unearthed some fascinating letters, McLaughlin provides little historical context and uncritically equates the unkown letter writers with the laboring class, which he never defines. Recommended for scholars in the field.
