Hailed by critics and embraced by readers, Most Blessed of the Patriarchs is one of the richest and most insightful accounts of Thomas Jefferson in a generation. Following her Pulitzer Prize-winning The Hemingses of Monticello, Annette Gordon-Reed has teamed with Peter S. Onuf to present a provocative and absorbing character study, a fresh and layered analysis (New York Times Book Review) that reveals our third president as a dynamic, complex and oftentimes contradictory human being (Chicago Tribune). Gordon-Reed and Onuf fundamentally challenge much of what we thought we knew, and through their painstaking research and vivid prose create a portrait of Jefferson, as he might have painted himself, one comprised of equal parts sun and shadow (Jane Kamensky).
