The Wolf by the Ears: Thomas Jefferson and Slavery
by Miller, John Chester
xii, 319 pp. "The Wolf by the Ears brings us closer to the workings Jefferson's mind on the slavery issue than any other book. It clarifies the nagging questions: Was the Declaration of Independence meant to speak for black slaves as well as white men of property? Why did Jefferson favor the removal of freed slaves from the United States? Why, when he had tried to exlude slavery from all U.S. territories in 1784, did he advocate extending slavery in the territories during the Missouri controversy of 1819-1821? ...John Chester Miller traces the development of Jefferson's attitudes toward slavery over the full course of his lifetime."Keywords: THOMAS JEFFERSON AMERICAN PRESIDENTS AMERICAN HISTORY SLAVERY First edition.
