Editorial Reviews


"In distinguishing Jefferson's universal appeal from his provincial identity, this thought-provoking book makes an important contribution to the study of the founding era." -- Andrew Burstein

Book Description

"A fine book and a worthy addition to the literature."--Virginia Magazine of History and Biography


"Casts fresh light on this Herculean American figure."--North Carolina Historical Review


"A welcome step away from the routine of Jefferson bashing. Hatzenbuehler does not hold back from exposing Jefferson's failure to live up to noble pronouncements found scattered throughout his life, but . . . seeks to place Jefferson's theory and actions in the more significant context of the political culture of the tobacco-growing, debt-ridden, slave-owning aristocracy of Virginia's gentry class."--Journal of American History


"Especially after his retirement from the presidency, Jefferson's identification with the Virginia elite grew deeper. He retreated from some of the nationalistic and idealistic positions he had earlier embraced and lost a burning desire to reform Virginia society. . . . This balanced and subtle study is a welcome addition to Jefferson scholarship."--American Historical Review


"Engaging and enjoyable, and many of its arguments are of special interest to Jefferson scholars. The book's literary style will likely appeal to general readers, who will learn much from this thought-provoking reexamination of Thomas Jefferson as person, not national founder."--Journal of Southern History
