About this title:

Synopsis: The fifth volume of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Jefferson series completes the story of his presidency, carrying him through his troubled second term but also to the end of an official career that spanned some forty years. Although Jefferson remained the major unifying factor in his party, the government, and the country, he was confronted by a succession of events that frustrated even his masterful statesmanship. Here is a vibrant account of Jefferson's disparate activities--sponsoring the Lewis and Clark Expedition, concluding the naval "war" with the Barbary pirates, engaging in a political duel with Chief Justice Marshall over the trial of Aaron Burr, attempting to impose an embargo on exports in reaction to the impression of American seamen by foreign powers, and, finally, retiring to his beloved haven at Monticello. Jefferson's withdrawal from office was only a prelude to the outstanding public service he was still to render as a private citizen. The productive last years of Jefferson's life are the subject of the final volume in this monumental biography.

About the Author:

Dumas Malone (1892-1986) taught history at American universities such as Yale and Columbia and served for seven years as director of the Harvard University Press before becoming the biographer-in-residence at the University of Virginia. His work as historian and biographer has earned him several honors, including the Pulitzer Prize, the Thomas Jefferson Award, the John F. Kennedy Medal, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.



Anna Fields (1965-2006), winner of more than a dozen Earphones Awards and the prestigious Audie Award in 2004, was one of the most respected narrators in the industry. Trained at the Actors Theatre of Louisville, she was also a director, producer, and technician at her own studio, Cedar House Audio.
