Abstract:

Readers will find in these detailed "background notes" a feast of little known facts, seldom noted events, and forgotten relationships. As they peer into historical nooks and crannies that only the author seems to know about, they will develop a new insight into the circumspect political loner who drafted the Declaration of Independence alone in his Philadelphia rooms. They will see how the Enlightenment' transformed Thomas Jefferson into the engaged social progressive who later waged and won the Second American Revolution. In this collection of narrative notes, the author discusses the factors that shaped the man who went to France: the people he encountered, the city he came to know, the circles he entered, and perhaps most importantly, the ideas they discussed. By examining the motives and objectives that guided Jefferson through his day-to-day affairs, Mr. Thompson brings welcome clarity to an image that somehow became murky.
