Matt’s Book Blog reviewed The Jeffersonian Transformation: Passages From The “History” by Henry Adams for the 2013 American Revolution Reading Challenge. Here’s an excerpt:
Henry Adams wrote a nine-volume history of the presidencies of Jefferson and Madison. Not being up to nine volumes, I read this abridgement that was published by the New York Review of Books in 2001. It contains the first six and last four chapters of the history. The first six chapters have been issued as a stand-alone book a couple times in the last fifty years or so, but generally Adams’ history has been neglected due to its length and inaccurate perceptions by critics.
