Much has been written about Thomas Jefferson, with good reason: His life was a great American drama-one of the greatest-played out in compelling acts.

Condition: New


Despite being a founder of both the United States and the French Republic, the creator of the phrase ?United States of America, ? and the author of three of the biggest bestsellers of the eighteenth century, Thomas Paine is perhaps the least well known ? and the most controversial ? of the American founding fathers. Unlike such friends and allies as Washington, Franklin, Jefferson, Hamilton, and John Adams, the world's first crusader for the public good has always remained a somewhat indistinct figure. How this lower- class British tradesman managed not only to have written the cornerstone of ... View more info

Master of the Mountain: Thomas Jefferson and His Slaves

Price: $14.95

Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux: October 2012

Seller ID: 17848

ISBN: 0374299560

Condition: New


Is there anything new to say about Thomas Jefferson and slavery? The answer is a resounding yes. "Master of the Mountain," Henry Wiencek's eloquent, persuasive book--based on new information coming from archaeological work at Monticello and on hitherto overlooked or disregarded evidence in Jefferson's papers--opens up a huge, poorly understood dimension of Jefferson's world. We must, Wiencek suggests, follow the money. So far, historians have offered only easy irony or paradox to explain this extraordinary Founding Father who was an emancipationist in his youth and then recoiled from hi... View more info

Now, for the first time, in The Great Upheaval, acclaimed historian Jay Winik masterfully illuminates how their fates combined in one extraordinary moment to change the course of civilization.In this sweeping, magisterial drama, Winik brings his vast, meticulous research and narrative genius ...

An illuminating study of the intertwined lives of the founders of the American republic--John Adams, Aaron Burr, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and George Washington.
