This analysis of Jefferson's antislavery views and the actions to which they gave rise, the subject matter of The Wolf by the Ears, is necessarily episodic; while chronology has been generally observed, it was not possible to weld this disparate material into the form of a biographical narrative.

Reviews:


In this excellent book..Miller offers a thorough account of Jefferson's attitudes and actions regarding slavery, blacks, and black-white relations from the 1760's until Jefferson's death in 1826. Almost nothing related to his subject escapes Miller's notice..A valuable and immensely informative volume.
