This small, moderately priced volume is the most original and most important contribution to understanding Patrick Henry to be published in many years. For too long, Henry has been perceived as Thomas Jefferson portrayed him, as an intuitive, poorly educated genius without deep knowledge of history and literature or even of the law, his chosen profession.
DOROTHEA DIX AND DR. FRANCIS T. STRIBLING: AN INTENSE by Alice Davis Wood
A very valuable portion of the book is an appendix of nearly forty pages that lists the titles of all of the books that Henry is known to have owned or read. Patrick Henry knew his British and ancient history, his Bible, his Shakespeare, and his geography. He also knew his law, and he read and wrote poetry. The Patrick Henry that Kevin Hayes introduces to readers of The Mind of a Patriot is a well-rounded professional and family man of unusual oratorical talents who was also a reader and student, a man whose mind was as impressive as his natural abilities.
The Hemingses of Monticello: In Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings: An American Family, is a detailed effort to take a much closer look at that relationship and the intertwined lives of those around it.
This volume received the National Book Award for Nonfiction. If descriptions of Sally Hemings are accurate, she looked much like her elder half- sister Martha. Robert and James Hemings were given better training in a trade and were later essentially freed by Jefferson.
James traveled to Paris with Jefferson when the latter became minister to France. While in Paris, Jefferson and Hemings began the relationship that lasted for the rest of his life. On their return to Monticello Sally and the other Hemingses benefited from this relationship. Gordon-Reed draws on private and public records to illustrate as well as possible what life for Sally and the other Hemingses was like.

One of its prime exemplars was Harry Flood Byrd, governor of Virginia from to This new study, in spite of its regional title, is largely about late twentieth-century Virginia, and it subjects the modern version of business progressivism to a searching critique. Virginia became a two-party state during the s, but majorities of both parties bought into the free market, limited government, low-tax ethos that became popular throughout the United States during the s.
Public policies of governors of both parties and of majorities in both houses of the General Assembly favored business interests and even to some extent muted the voices of liberal reform and social conservatism.

They also, if Michael Dennis is correct, failed to calculate the fiscal and social benefits and costs. If, as often happened, corporations failed to meet commitments entered into after receiving large incentives to relocate to Virginia, the state lost money, jobs, and revenue.

This is a stern assessment of the kind to which business progressivism in Virginia has not often been subjected since its introduction in the s.
