Thomas Jefferson: A Life
Professor Willard Sterne Randall discussed his book, Thomas Jefferson: A Life, published by Henry Holt and Company. In the 700-page book, the emphasis is on Jefferson’s years in France as ambassador from the U.S., because there is less documentation of that period of his life. Professor Randall described much of Jefferson’s life, his career, and his relationships with others. Mr. Randall describes Thomas Jefferson as a man who was intelligent, and extremely goal-oriented. He further explains that President Jefferson often resorted to ruthlessness in both personal and political settings. close
