Description
O'Brien argues that Jefferson, though enthralled with the ideological mystique of the French Revolution, retained a shrewd political pragmatism, skillfully exploiting the Revolution's popularity with the American public. Ultimately, Jefferson's egalitarian ideals came into conflict with his staunch political support for the slave-based southern economy and his revolutionary zeal began to cool.

O'Brien seriously questions whether we can sustain Jefferson's lofty status in an increasingly multiracial America, and he suggests a disturbing link between Jefferson's vision and white supremacist, survivalist extremists.
