Thomas Jefferson : a comprehensive, annotated bibliography (by Frank Shuffelton)
Vol. 1 is the first volume of the best biography of TJ; covers until 1784. Malone goes into great detail on TJ's life, but has a tendency to engage in what might seem special pleading in regard to some of TJ's more questionable actions. This tendency is more noticeable in the later volumes (but not the final one), and since Malone scrupulously presents all the facts, a reader is not obliged to accept his judgments blindly. -- Frank Shuffelton
-
Vol. 2 covers TJ's years in France and his service as Secretary of State, 1784-1792. -- Frank Shuffelton
Vol. 3 covers the years 1792-1801, until TJ's inauguration as president. -- Frank Shuffelton
Vol. 6 covers the years from 1809 to TJ's death in 1826; reflections on what TJ accomplished in his presidency show a good critical sense, and the accounts of TJ's troubles in his last years are quite moving. A strong conclusion to a masterly biography. The final volume of Malone's definitive, six volume biography of TJ. Covers the years from 1809 and TJ's retirement from the presidency through his death in 1826. Notable for its treatment of the private life of TJ in retirement, the matter of the Batture Controversy which dragged on after he left the White House, the sale of his library to the nation, and his labors to establish the University of Virginia, his responses to the Missouri Compromise and the new set of political questions that emerged after the War of 1812, and his troubled financial situation of his last years. Marked by Malone's usual high standards of scholarship, and by a balance and judgment that had seemed threatened at times by defensiveness in some of the earlier volumes. Listed as # 763 in TJCAB-- Frank Shuffelton
