Description
The Pulitzer Prize–winning author of the Andrew Jackson biography American Lion and the profile Franklin and Winston here gives us new perspective on one of our most iconic founders. Philosophers think; politicians maneuver, notes Jon Meachem, while Thomas Jefferson's genius was that he was both and could do both, often simultaneously. Jefferson hated confrontation, and yet his understanding of power and of human nature enabled him to move men and marshal ideas, and learn from his mistakes. Passionate about many things—women, family, books, science, architecture, gardens, friends, Monticello, and Paris—Jefferson loved America foremost, and he strove again and again, despite fierce opposition, to realize his vision of popular government. Meacham gives us Jefferson's world as Jefferson himself saw it, allowing us to appreciate how he found the means to endure and win in the face of rife partisan division, economic uncertainty, and threats from abroad.

"This terrific book allows us to see the political genius of Thomas Jefferson better than we have ever seen it before. In these endlessly fascinating pages, Jefferson emerges with such vitality that it seems as if he might still be alive today."—Doris Kearns Goodwin
