On the Jefferson Reading Seminar

with one comment

One of my favorites here at Darden for several reasons. Some of books that we read –

1. Jefferson and his time – Jefferson the Virginian

2. Jefferson and his time – The Sage of Monticello

The above books are part of a 6 volume biography by Dumas Malone. They are the word on Jefferson – One downside, they are long and every page is quite dense.

3. John Adams – Biography by David McCullough.

– Phenomenal book

4. Undaunted Courage: Meriwether Lewis, Thomas Jefferson, and the Opening of the American West by Stephen Ambrose

– A Beauty, fascinating details

5. The Founding Brothers by Joseph Ellis

РI liked all the books we read but this one takes the title. A fabulous book which through its series of anecdotes portrays the character of Washington, Adams, Hamilton, Burr, Jefferson, and Hamilton among others. Probably the most unbiased account (if there can be one).
