Item Details

"In 1776 Thomas Jefferson, a future president, authored the most explosive document in the history of America: The Declaration of Independence, formally severing the link between America and the British state. Michael Hardt, co-author of the groundbreaking Empire and Multitude, examines this and other texts by Jefferson, arguing that his powerful concept of democracy is, seen through contemporary eyes, a biting critique of the current American Administration's tyranny"--P. [4] of cover.
