Summary, etc.: A seminal biography of Thomas Jefferson and an exploration of his relationship with Sally Hemings. With a novelist's skill and a scholar's meticulous detail, Fawn M. Brodie portrays Thomas Jefferson as he wrestled with great issues of his time: revolution, religion, power, race, and love - ambivalences that exerted a subtle but powerful influence on his political ideas and his presidency. Brodie's biography was the first to set forth a convincing case that Thomas Jefferson was the father of children by his slave Sally Hemings. In a new introduction, Annette Gordon-Reed, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Hemingses of Monticello, explores the impact of Brodie's groundbreaking book and explains why it is such a powerful account of one of our greatest and most elusive presidents--Publisher's description.
