This is the most comprehensive selection ever published of the writings of our third president and foremost spokesman for democracy. Jefferson, a brilliant political thinker, is perhaps best known for the Declaration of Independence, but he was a man of extraordinarily wide interests. Here along with his public papers are pieces on science, archaelogy, architecture, gardening, and literature; travel journals; first-hand accounts of the French Revolution; fascinating descriptions of life in early America, including the complete Notes on the State of Virginia; and more than 250 brilliant and urbane letters to such men as Patrick Henry, Thomas Paine, Lafayette, Madison, and John Adams. For a renewed sense of the possibility that the United States represented to its founders, this is a remarkable and indispensible book.
