Editorial Reviews


"These are powerful essays exploring the complexities of Jefferson's ideas and their relevance today as liberal democracies face an illiberal network of nations. Any one interested in the origins of modern democratic thought and its pertinence to our world must read them."--Joyce Appleby, UCLA

"'The Future of Liberal Democracy: Thomas Jefferson and the Contemporary World' offers a vigorous dialogue on what democracy means to different people. In doing so, it frames a key debate of our time, and gives Jefferson's ideals new life. This collection will help us navigate the stormy waters to come." --Lee H. Hamilton, President of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and former Chairman of the House Committee on International Relations.

"The Future of Liberal Democracy: Thomas Jefferson and the Contemporary World collects the seventeen papers presented at a scholarly conference in Bellagio, Italy, 2002, under the sponsorship of the International Center for Jefferson Studies, at Monticello, and the Rockefeller Foundation. It may be read as a revisit after some fifty years to the controverted issue between American exceptionalism and the export of American democracy to the emerging new nations of the Third World, an issue that echoes forcefully in our day. The essays are a rich miscellany: Jefferson and modern nation-building; Jefferson and his philosophical contemporaries; Jefferson and citizenship and human rights everywhere.
All these efforts to analogize Jefferson to the world, while full of perplexities, are nevertheless valuable. In the end I am led to observe that the most precious liberty of all in Jefferson's canon, the liberty of religious conscience with its corollary of separation of chuch and state, appears to have been largely 'lost in translation.' --Merril D. Peterson
