The Wisdom of Thomas Jefferson
Citadel Press, 2003 - 251 страници
Thomas Jefferson was selected by John Adams to write America's Declaration of Independence. The third president of the United States, Jefferson was, as Joseph Ellis describes him, a "tall, slender, elegantly elusive Virginian...an always cool and self-contained enigma who regarded debate and argument as violations of the natural harmonies he heard inside his own head." In The Wisdom of Thomas Jefferson, this powerful advocate of liberty comes alive through his eloquent correspondence and writings on issues that have relevance today -- from the presidency to freedom, and from education and civil rights to personalities such as Adams, James Madison, and George Washington.
