    This is by far the weightiest, busiest and most complicated of the series. This volume details the last portion of Jefferson's political life, immediately prior to his retirement, and thus is marked by a sense of urgency, of time dwindling and affairs hastily put in order. Jefferson ha...

    Kudos to Audible.com for supplying a 1990s Blackstone audio version of this exquisitely detailed biography, with Anna Fields reading. Her voice has a wonderful, even tempo and just the right amount of constructed pomp for reading from the many diaries, letters, speeches and other polit...

    This book covers a significant period in our early history including the Barbary Wars, the Embargo and the treason trial of Aaron Burr. Like Theodore Roosevelt and George W. Bush a century and two later, Jefferson became entangled in Middle Eastern intrigues when he he challenged the l...

    This is the 5th volume of 6. Obviously I think well of this series, otherwise I never would have muddled through the previous 4 volumes. And for those of you who are wonder, yes, I do have a life ? it has taken me a few years to get this far. I have read more superficially entertaini...

    This review applies to the entire series, Jefferson and His Times. Anyone who wants to understand a fraction of Jefferson, needs to start here. This work is the source that most academicians use. It is thorough and depends upon Jefferson's correspondence, editorials, reports, day book...

    Volume V of Malone's exhaustive study of Thomas Jefferson covers the latter's second and final term as President. It is significantly longer than Volume IV was (that is NOT a good thing when it comes to this series) mainly because Jefferson faced more vexatious issues starting in 1805 ...

    Even better than the first term, although this portion of his presidency was less successful. This account leads us into the War of 1812 and Madison's coming of age. Poor Madison. Although I have yet to read his biography, I fear he hit his stride with the writing of the Constitution. ...

    If you want to know all there is about Jefferson this is the series. This book has a lot of detail and helps to explain a lot about early 19th century politics. However it?s very dry at times. ...

    Five books into the Jefferson the President series, historian and author Dumas Malone once again shows why his volumes on the third president are still considered the ultimate source on his presidency. This work covers the second term of Thomas Jefferson's presidency (March 1805-Mar...

    Malone's paean to Jefferson continues. His refusal to believe that Jefferson might have done ANYTHING devious or politically expedient borders on the manic, but the series continues to be a must-read and invaluable resource for lovers of early American history. ...
