An illuminating analysis of the man whose name is synonymous with American democracy. Jefferson was the originator of so many of the founding principles of American democracy. He introduced the bills separating church and state and mandating free public education. He initiated the Lewis and Clark expedition and seized on the crucial moment when Napoleon decided to sell the Louisiana Territory. In this compelling examination, distinguished historian Joyce Appleby captures all of the richness of Jefferson's character and accomplishments.

Thomas Jefferson by Joyce Appleby--Audiobook Excerpt

Listen to this audiobook excerpt from Joyce Appleby's biography Thomas Jefferson, part of The American Presidents Series. Few presidents have embodied the American spirit as fully as Thomas Jefferson. He was the originator of so many of the founding principles of American democracy. Politically, he shuffled off the centralized authority of the Federalists, working toward a more diffuse and minimalist leadership.
