An international collection of the world's most distinguished historians and political philosophers takes a fresh look at the political, legal, and philosophical contributions of Thomas Jefferson. The insightful essays analyze and illuminate the sophisticated layers of the political and legal thought of America's most influential and intellectually complex founder. With contributors who include Elizabeth Fox-Genovese, Morton J. Frisch, Paul A. Rahe, James R. Stoner, Robert K. Faulkner, John Zvesper, Howard Temperley, Robert A. Rutland, Raoul Berger, Colin Bonwick, Peter J. Parish, Jeffrey Leigh Sedgewick, J. R. Pole, Richard King, and Jean M. Yarborough, this is essential reading for historians and political philosophers.
