The Jefferson Rule: How the Founding Fathers Became Infallible and Our Politics Inflexible considers the patterns of American politics that originated with the founding fathers, but which have moved far from their early guidance. It begins with the debate between Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton over the new nation's future and continues to modern times, linking the basic politics and concepts of these Founding Fathers to the evolution of political actions in this country, and it provides a key to understanding the views of the founding generation and why sometimes they don't apply to modern circumstances. The result is a solid, involving political examination suitable for classroom discussion and any American history reader.
