About the Author:

Gary L. McDowell is professor of American studies and director of the Institute of United States Studies at the University of London. Sharon L. Noble is a research associate at the Institute of United States Studies at the University of London.

Review:

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.)

. . . this volume proves that serious, urbane scholarship on the Sage of Monticello can still be produced and published. The editors are to be commended for a fine volume of high quality that should grace many university, college, and private libraries. (Sheldon, Garrett Ward William And Mary Quarterly, October 1998)

“Wide ranging and insightful.....” (Marion Rust Journal Of American History)

...outstanding for the diversity of topics it covers and the high quality of its essays that brilliantly frame and explore the many compartments and contradictions of the Virginian politician. (Alberto Lena History Of Political Thought)

A wonderfully rich collection of fresh, controversial, and deeply thought provoking essays on Jefferson. (Pangle, Thomas)

...the book presents an extremely nuanced portrait of Jefferson as an 'apostle of liberty'. (J.R. Oldfield July 17, 1998)
