Editorial Reviews

Review

It's easy to see why John F. Kennedy told a dinner for American winners of the Nobel Prize that his audience was the most brilliant assembly ever gathered in the White House except when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.

(Washington Post)

A timely survey of current thinking about the role of classical republicanism.

(George F. Will)

10 of 12 people found the following review helpful By eunomius on July 3, 1999
Format: Paperback
This work provides a good survey of Jefferson's political thought, as well as an excellent piece concerning the intellectual battle over the classical republican paradigm. This piece, by the way, is well worth the price of the book. Nevertheless, although this is a worthy work, it pales in comparison to David N. Mayer's "The Constitutional Thought of Thomas Jefferson." If you are truly interested in Jefferson's political thought, Mayer's is the foremost work on the subject.

I have had Dr. Sheldon for several classes, and his books are amazing. He has written many works that any Political Science major would grow from reading. Dr. Sheldon has an amazing grasp of Thomas Jefferson and his Encyclopedia of Political Thought is the most complete volume I have ever seen.
