Have you ever wondered how Jefferson dressed? What he looked like? How he carried himself? Maurizio Valsania answers these questions and more by drawing insights, not only from eighteenth-century record, but also from the fields of medical science, psychology, and cultural anthropology. The result? A book which offers…“a revealing and novel way to reconsider Jefferson's thinking about nature, self, others, and race.” (Alan Taylor, UVA, author of American Revolutions: A Continental History, 1750-1804). Valsania is professor of American History at the University of Torino, Italy, and author of Nature’s Man: Thomas Jefferson’s Philosophical Anthropology and The Limits of Optimism: Thomas Jefferson's Dualistic Enlightenment (UVA Press).
