A few blurbs:
'Matthew Crow's book is a dazzling achievement, deepening and expanding our understanding of Jefferson's conception of the meaning of his (and his nation's) past. Not only does it place his struggles with slavery and nationhood in his own time and place, but it provides the present with a cautionary guide to the self-reflection required of all citizens.' -- David Konig
'Matthew Crow’s new book is a beautiful exploration of the shifts in Thomas Jefferson’s thought. Crow gives not only a powerful account of Jefferson’s philosophical understanding of civic membership but also the psychology of his republicanism. This is a remarkable effort of intellectual reconstruction and an essential contribution to scholarship on the early American republic.' -- Aziz RanaMore information is available here.
