Severance follows Jefferson's career from his school days at William and Mary through his rise in American . He is depicted as a curious, creative, brilliant champion of democracy: a crusader for individual rights and education.

Severance follows Jefferson's career from his school days at William and Mary through his rise in American politics. Throughout the concise and swift-moving narrative, the author integrates aspects of world history and of 18th- and 19th-century cultural, scientific, and literary life that help to place Jefferson within his world. While one might wish for more information on Jefferson's family and personal life, the emphasis here is on political and military history. A wealth of archival drawings and maps and reproductions illuminate the potentially overwhelming detail of text.

Jeffersonian democracy, named after its advocate Thomas Jefferson, was one of two dominant political outlooks and movements in the United States from the 1790s to the 1820s. The Jeffersonians were deeply committed to American republicanism, which meant opposition to what they considered to be artificial aristocracy, opposition to corruption, and insistence on virtue, with a priority for the "yeoman farmer", "planters", and the "plain folk"

The words of the Declaration of Independence, so familiar to us and so important to our country, were those of Thomas Jefferson. He was a primary force behind United States independence. Without his influence, our country would be vastly different from the nation we know today. Jefferson initiated public education, established a national library, and paved the way for the abolishment of slavery. Although he was not a power-hungry or even ambitious politician, Jefferson served in many different offices, including president, in order to help his fledgling country remain on its feet. His faith and dedication to the idea of self-government never wavered, even in the face of many personal hardships. John B. Severance traces Jefferson's life from his plantation boyhood to his two terms as president and his last days preparing for the opening of the University of Virginia, weaving details of both Jefferson's political career and his rich personal life together to create a thoughtful and well-researched biography. Jefferson quotes, bibliography, index.

Very informative, basic history book. Easy to read, not too much detail. I use it to teach my ESL students a little history in preparation for the US citizenship test.

I am an 8th grade teacher and this is on my summer reading list for incoming students. They get to choose between this and two Albert Marrin books on Washington and Lincoln. This book is the favorite of my students, in part because it is shorter and more readable than the other two. I find it dificult to find exceptional biographies for Middle School readers. They are not ready for adult books, but most of the children's biographies have a target age of 9-12. This is ideal for them, and I enjoyed it as well.
