Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power
By Jon Meacham
Jon Meacham won the Pulitzer Prize for his biography of Andrew Jackson, American Lion (2008).
The foundation stone of the study of Thomas Jefferson is the six-volume Jefferson and His Time, by Dumas Malone. Other sources include Merrill Peterson’s massive Thomas Jefferson and the New Nation and Conor Cruise O’Brien’s remarkable The Long Affair: Thomas Jefferson and the French Revolution. We published a review of O’Brien’s book in the March 1997 issue of the Appellate Practice Journal.
