Real Thomas Jefferson, The: paperback

by Andrew M. Allison


Quick Overview

Real Thomas Jefferson, The: paperback


The title may seem presumptuous at first glance, but it is not meant to suggest that those of us who prepared the book are gifted with superior insight. Indeed, we have made a conscious effort to keep ourselves out of the picture. By allowing Jefferson to explain his life and ideas in his own words, we have tried to ensure that his spirit, not ours, will breathe in these pages-so that all who read them will become acquainted with Jefferson himself, not another second-hand interpretation of him. Before we can appreciate and utilize his magnificent vision of a free republic, we must correctly understand both his life and his ideas. Thus the two-part format of this volume: the biography in Part I and the selected quotations in Part 11 are complementary elements, each making the other more meaningful and providing a fuller portrait of the real Jefferson. The book consists mostly of Jefferson's own words; even the biography is drawn chiefly from his writings. In both sections the passages quoted are carefully documented from original sources. Size 1.5" H x 8.1" L x 5.4" W, 709 pages
