Thomas Jefferson: An Intimate History

Author(s): Fawn M. Brodie

American

With a novelist's skill and a scholar's attention to detail, Fawn M. Brodie portrays Thomas Jefferson as he wrestled with the issues of his time: revolution, religion, power, race and love. In a new introduction, Annette Gordon-Reed, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Hemingses of Monticello (ISBN 978 0 393 06477 3), explores the impact of the book and explains why it remains a powerful account of one of America's most elusive presidents.
