    For a man who insisted that life on the public stage was not what he had in mind, Thomas Jefferson certainly spent a great deal of time in the spotlight, even in his retirement. In American Sphinx, Ellis sifts the facts from the legend to find the heart of the man who, at the grass roots, is no longer liberal or conservative, agrarian or industrialist, pro- or anti-slavery, privileged or populist.

    ks says: "Badly Scratched Record"
    "And You Thought History was Boring"
    Overall

    A revealing and honest look at one of our "Founding Fathers". Ellis reveals Jefferson as a complex and some what tragic figure. As with Ellis's "His Excellency" about George Washington, we learn so much more about the human side of these gifted but human men.The ruthless politics of today seems tame compared to the politics of this(Washington,Jefferson, Adams, Burr, Hamilton) historic time.
