Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This is going to be the Jefferson…it will endure as one of the imperishable monuments of biography—and take note that I don’t say ‘American biography,’ I say biography period.” Gerald W. Johnson
“Malone is the giant on whose shoulders every subsequent scholar of Jefferson stands, and his work remains seminal in shaping our understanding of who Jefferson was. Both from a purely scholarly standpoint and outside the groves of academe, Malone’s biography of Jefferson is simply a gread read.” Joseph J. Ellis, National Book Award–winning author of American Sphinx: The Character of Thomas Jefferson
“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
“Prodigiously researched and felicitously written, Dumas Malone’s multi-volume Jefferson and His Time is one of the great biographies of the twentieth century.” New Republic
“‘Perfect’ best describes Anna Fields’ reading of a very detailed account of Thomas Jefferson’s first forty-one years.” Booklist
