Dumas Malone’s classic six-volume biography Jefferson and His Time was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in history and became the standard work on Jefferson’s life.

Volume 2. Jefferson and the Rights of Man
In this second volume, Malone recounts the eventful middle years of Jefferson’s life, beginning with the European mission and Jefferson’s ministry to France and continuing through his role in the French revolution and his memorable service as secretary of state in the first cabinet of George Washington.


Jefferson and the Rights of Man is better, even, than its predecessor, and that is saying a great deal. What I like particularly is that Malone... has by some great miracle, achieved something of Jefferson’s own combination of profundity and erudition and gracefulness.
