Summary
"The writings of Thomas Jefferson hold endless fascination for Americans and, as the international perspective concluding this volume suggests, for thoughtful people around the world. Here, Liu Zuochang's assessment of Jefferson's relevance to contemporary Chinese thinkers joins essays by American scholars who address the issue of education and the preparation for citizenship that underlies a free society as Thomas Jefferson perceived it."--Jacket
