"...stands alone against Henry Adams's Jefferson, and wins...Bailey's Jefferson solves one of the puzzles at the heart of Jefferson's intellectual and political life...Bailey's understanding of Jefferson's executive power is so persuasive that it changes the question from what Jefferson actually thought to whether he was right about what he actually thought."
-Benjamin A. Kleinerman, Review of Politics
"Jeremy Bailey has written a fine analysis of [Thomas] Jefferson’s theory and practice of presidential leadership that is relevant for the contemporary presidency."
-Erwin C. Hargrove, Vanderbilt University, Congress & the Presidency
