About the Author

Lawrence S. Kaplan is university professor emeritus at Kent State University and adjunct professor of history at Georgetown University.


Kaplan's synthesis of Jefferson sets a high standard, and the book belongs in all college and university collections. * The International History Review * Gracefully written, engrossing biography. -- Howard Jones, research professory, University of Alabama With this volume, Lawrence Kaplan confirms his reputation as a master of Jeffersonian studies. Thomas Jefferson: Westward the Course of Empire presents a brisk but comprehensive, eminently fair-minded account of Jefferson's views and policies regarding foreign policy. By no means uncritical of Jefferson's strategic errors and wanderings from his professed principles, Kaplan nevertheless discerns a basic consistency in aims, namely, a desire to throw off European constraints and to expand the American empire. -- Bradford Perkins, University of Michigan Scholars will applaud this evenhanded study of Mr. Jefferson. This volume, well written and well grounded in the most recent secondary accounts, should be well received by its intended audience. * American Diplomacy *
