'... stimulating, powerful, exceedingly well-written, and engrossing.' -The Journal of American History
'Fresh, endlessly fascinating, and altogether extraordinary ... A sweeping, continent-wide reinterpretation of early US history from Kennedy, who replaces individualist heroes such as Daniel Boone with economic movements, transcontinental forces, and unintended consequences ... Thematically rich and full of subtle arguments, Kennedy's study forces a reconsideration of accepted views. It couldn't come at a better time, given the soon-to-be widely commemorated bicentenary of the Lewis and Clark expedition.' -Kirkus Reviews

Thomas Jefferson espoused a yeoman republic and presided over the expansion of a slave-based plantocracy. The price was paid by the land itself, and in civil war. His Louisiana Purchase opened the lower Mississippi Valley to an Empire of Freedom, and a series of avoidable decisions produced instead an empire of servitude. A vivid panorama of places and peoples from Florida and Texas to London, Spain, and Haiti, Mr. Jefferson's Lost Cause interprets the Founding Father's lost cause not as the defeat of slavery but as the defeat of free labour.
