Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Jefferson and His Time is a masterly achievement of scholarship, the finest biography of Jefferson we have or are likely to have, and a monumental triumph of the senior American historian.” New York Times Book Review
“Maintains the mature scholarship established by the earlier volumes. Academic in the best sense, it not only displays an intimate familiarity with the vast literature but contains an acute evaluation of Jefferson’s ideas and ideals.” Saturday Review
“‘Perfect’ best describes Anna Fields’ reading of a very detailed account of Thomas Jefferson’s first 41 years.” Booklist
