Overview

Thomas Jefferson's greatest impact on society came from his involvement in politics—as a writer and thinker, and as governor, congressman, ambassador, cabinet member, vice-president, and president. In this volume, editor Merrill D. Peterson has gleaned Jefferson's basic ideas on politics and produced a book containing the core of our third president's political thought.
