Editor of Thomas Jefferson's Light and Liberty, Reflections on the Pursuit of Happiness

The Modern Library, Random House, New York
Light and Liberty is the book of inspiration that Thomas Jefferson never wrote, although every word here is his. Editor Eric S. Petersen, after extensive study of Jefferson’s reports, state papers, speeches, and twenty thousand letters, has elegantly woven together thirty-four concise essays of profound wisdom on how to lead a meaningful life, as individuals and in our life as a nation.
