A seminal biography of Thomas Jefferson and a fascinating exploration of his relationship with Sally Hemings.

With a novelist’s skill and a scholar’s meticulous detail, Fawn M. Brodie portrays Thomas Jefferson as he wrestled with the great issues of his time: revolution, religion, power, race, and love―ambivalences that exerted a subtle but powerful influence on his political ideas and his presidency. Far advanced for its time, Brodie’s biography was the first to set forth a convincing case that Thomas Jefferson was the father of children by his slave Sally Hemings. In a new introduction, Annette Gordon-Reed, the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Hemingses of Monticello, explores the impact of Brodie’s groundbreaking book and explains why it is still such a powerful account of one of our greatest and most elusive presidents. 16 pages of illustrations

Review:

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

“A powerful and touching portrait. . . . Brodie has humanized Jefferson without in the least diminishing him.”
- Wallace Stegner, author of Beyond the Hundredth Meridian
