Thomas Jefferson and the Growing United States (1800–1811)

Out of stock
How could Thomas Jefferson have championed freedom while owning slaves himself? That enduring question, among others, is explored evenhandedly in this clear, simple volume. Readers learn about the philosophical ideas that were important to Jefferson—independence, freedom, and education—and how and why they often conflicted with his actions. Photographs, illustrations, and maps add visual interest. Bolded words are defined at the bottom of the spread on which they appear. A time line begins the book, and back matter includes suggested reading, a list of relevant Web sites, and an index.
