About this title:
Synopsis:
From one of America's foremost historians, Inventing America compares Thomas Jefferson's original draft of the Declaration of Independence with the final, accepted version, thereby challenging many long-cherished assumptions about both the man and the document. Although Jefferson has long been idealized as a champion of individual rights, Wills argues that in fact his vision was one in which interdependence, not self-interest, lay at the foundation of society. "No one has offered so drastic a revision or so close or convincing an analysis as Wills has . . . The results are little short of astonishing" (Edmund S. Morgan New York Review of Books ).

From the Publisher:
"No one has offered so drastic a revision or so close or convincing an analysis as Wills has...The results are little short of astonishing."
-- Edmund S. Morgan The New York Review of Books

"The best and most thorough analysis of the Declaration ever written."
--David Brion Davis, The New York Times Book Review
