Perhaps it is easy to view Jefferson as a two-dimensional historical figure, whose life, in hindsight, seems distant and predictable. Yet, much of what we take for granted about the United States today—religious freedom, the accessibility of education, and the size and reach of government—can be traced directly back to Jefferson. His position on both government and society were radical for their time. Simply put, Jefferson was a revolutionary. Thus, inThomas Jefferson—Revolutionary: A Radical’s Struggle to Remake America, Kevin Gutzman embraces Jefferson’s complexities and gives readers a new perspective on the life and work of Jefferson. Gutzman is a New York Times best-selling author of four books and Professor of History, Western Connecticut State University.
