Summary
"Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, and James Monroe were in the vanguard of revolutionary ideas in the 18th century. As founding fathers, they risked their lives for American independence, but they also wanted more. Each wished for profound changes in the political and social fabric of pre-1776 America and hoped that the American Revolution would spark republican and egalitarian revolutions throughout Europe, sweeping away the old monarchical order. Ultimately, each rejoiced at the opportunity to be a part of the French Revolution, a cause that became untenable as idealism gave way to the bloody Reign of Terror. [This book] spans a crucial period in Western Civilization ranging from the American insurgency against Great Britain to the Declaration of Independence, from desperate engagements on American battlefields to the threat posed to the ideals of the Revolution by the Federalist Party. With the French Revolution devolving into carnage and unrelenting warfare in the background, the era culminates with the "Revolution of 1800"--Jefferson's election as president. ritten s a sweeping narrative of a pivotal epoch, [this book] captures the turbulent spirit of the times and the personal dangers experienced by Jefferson, Paine, and Monroe."--Jacket
