Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Banning (The Jeffersonian Persuasion: Evolution of a Party Ideology, 1978) examines Jefferson's views on the Bill of Rights, private property, public debt, and public spirit in relation to the writing of the Constitution. He compares them with James Madison's views using several primary sources, including the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson's First Inaugural Address, and their correspondence. Both men were concerned with problems that still face us today-individual rights and the national debt. Half the book is a reprinting of the author's sources, and the reader should read the documents first and then Banning's essays. In his preface, Banning says that his target audience is not only scholars but Americans who feel that Jefferson and Madison are relevant today. Here he misses his mark because his dry, scholarly style makes this book suitable for academic library purchase only.

Both Jefferson and Madison were concerned with problems that still face us—individual rights and the national debt. . . . [Banning's] target audience is not only scholars but Americans who feel that Jefferson and Madison are relevant today. (Library Journal)

A well-crafted work of history that not only gives insight into the lives and thoughts of the two men but also stimulates thought about the public institutions they helped create. (Kirkus Reviews)
