Editorial Reviews

Henry Steele Commager

Jefferson and the Rights of Man is better, even, than its predecessor, and that is saying a great deal. What I like particularly is that Malone... has by some great miracle, achieved something of Jefferson’s own combination of profundity and erudition and gracefulness.

From Barnes & Noble
This second book in the multi-volume biography of Thomas Jefferson, Jefferson and His Time, follows Jefferson the Virginian and tells the story of the eventful middle years of Jefferson's life--his ministry to France just before the French Revolution and during the early stages of that struggle and his service as secretary of state in President Washington's first cabinet. The author sheds new light on Jefferson's relation with the new American government and on the early differences between Jefferson and Hamilton. "The vivid details of Jefferson's life flow harmoniously into the larger structure of politics and philosophy..."--Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. "Jefferson and His Time is a masterly achievement of scholarship, the finest biography of Jefferson we have or are likely to have, and a monumental triumph of the senior American historian."--C. Vann Woodward, New York Times Book Review.
