The Long Affair: Thomas Jefferson and the French Revolution, 1785-1800 (1996)

Conor Cruise O'Brien

As controversial and explosive as it is elegant and learned, The Long Affair is Conor Cruise O’Brien’s examination of Thomas Jefferson, as man and icon, through the critical lens of the French Revolution.
