MEDIA REVIEWS

This well-written, thoroughly researched, highly provocative collection of essays by eminent scholars makes a significant contribution to an understanding of Jefferson's classicism.--Carl J. Richard, University of Louisiana at Lafayette "author of "Greeks and Romans Bearing Gifts: How the Ancients Inspired the Founding Fathers" "


This is a striking collection of essays. Jefferson associated classicism with ideas of beauty and taste, and ideals of health, virtue, and contentment. Yet this volume says much more, going beyond Jefferson to address broader intellectual currents and matters of historical consciousness. Importantly, the contributors do not shy from questioning traditional assumptions about the centrality of classical knowledge in the political thought of early Americans. Diverse and greatly appealing.--Andrew Burstein, Louisiana State University "author of "Jefferson's Secrets: Death and Desire at Monticello" "
