9780553201505: Thomas Jefferson

An ambitious, perceptive portrayal of a complex man, this best-selling biography broke new ground in its exploration of Jefferson's inner life.

Here for the first time we meet Jefferson as a man of feeling and passion. With a novelist's skill and meticulous scholarship, Fawn M. Brodie shows Jefferson as he wrestled with issues of revolution, religion, power, race, and love-ambivalences that exerted a subtle but powerful influence on his political writing and his decision making. The portrait that results adds a whole new depth to those of the past.

Review:

“Brilliant, provocative. . . . A biography no one interested in the man or his times should miss.”
- Larry McMurtry, Washington Post Book World

“An extraordinary human drama told with great insight, compassion, and literary skill. What history should be but seldom is.”
- Page Smith

“Thoroughly fascinating, opening vistas into Jefferson's life and thought that were fresh and exciting. A superbly written book, sparkling with new information and interpretation.”
- Ray A. Billington

“Powerful and touching. . . . The story of an intimate life hidden from and at odds with the public life. . . . Brodie has humanized Jefferson without in the least diminishing him.”
- Wallace Stegner
