As more and more Americans become convinced of the need to devolve power away from Washington and back to the states and localities, our Jeffersonian inheritance once more becomes intensely relevant. By providing us with this marvelous collection of new interpretive essays, Gary McDowell and Sharon Noble put us all in their debt. (Richard E. Morgan)
Thomas Jefferson was one of the greatest Americans, yet suffered from typical American faults. This fine collection looks for the man, and the nation, in Jefferson's ideas, bringing new studies of his thought and influence. (Mansfield, Harvey C.)
