Review of Most Blessed of the Patriarchs by Annette Gordon-Reed

"Most Blessed of the Patriarchs": Thomas Jefferson and the Empire of the Imagination - Annette Gordon-Reed, Peter S. Onuf

A great book on Thomas Jefferson by the expert on him - Annette Gordon-Reed.  This book is not a traditional biography.  It does go through his life chronologically, but it is a bit more thematic in nature as it focuses more on his views on family, slavery, society, etc...  there is very little in terms of background information on the Revolution or his specific actions as President, but I don't feel like that this book needed any of it.  Recommended for anyone who loves the time period and enjoys reading history.
