Editorial Reviews

Richard E. Morgan
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.
William and Mary Quarterly
. . . 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.

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.

A wonderfully rich collection of fresh, controversial, and deeply thought provoking essays on Jefferson.
J.R. Oldfield
The book presents an extremely nuanced portrait of Jefferson as an 'apostle of liberty'.
