Editorial Reviews


With the present plethora of books on Jefferson, it is amazing that anyone could say anything new and interesting about the man, but Hannah Spahn has done it.

(Gordon S. Wood, Brown University)

Hannah Spahn’s extraordinary study brings Thomas Jefferson into fresh and illuminating new perspective. The statesman and philosopher, public figure and private man experienced the flow of time and history in radically different ways, as ‘an absolute time of natural laws and a relative time of human actions and perceptions.’ These distinctive temporalities provide the frame for one of the most insightful and compelling portraits of the master of Monticello in recent memory. Thomas Jefferson, Time, and History marks the triumphant debut of a brilliant young historian.

(Peter S. Onuf, Thomas Jefferson Foundation Professor, University of Virginia)
