Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Jefferson and the Rights of Man is better, even, than its predecessor, and that is saying a great deal. What I like particularly is that Malone carries his great learning so lightly, that he has, by some miracle, achieved something of Jefferson’s own combination of profundity and erudition and gracefulness.” Henry Steele Commager
