Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Marking the 250th anniversary of Thomas Jefferson's birth, a new biography of the great founding father presents Jefferson as a dynamic "modern" man who was thoroughly influenced by the philosophical movements of his time. TV tie-in. 30,000 first printing.

Review:

A biography of Thomas Jefferson, who despite his legendary intelligence and political savvy, could be ruthless, not to mention lawless, in his efforts to preserve his causes. Jefferson operated on two levels, as his opposition to slavery as a slaveowner attests. But as Willard Sterne Randall argues, this duality is what made him so effective. Whether Jefferson's 1784 draft of Virginia's constitution "prefigured the founding documents of republics in Europe, Asia, Africa and South America, as well as the Confederate States of America," as Randall claims, is questionable, but his impact on international trade, diplomatic discussions and the success of the state of Virginia cannot be disputed.
