American History Book Club

The American History Book Club will discuss The Great Divide: The Conflict Between Washington and Jefferson That Defined America, Then and Now by Thomas Fleming (Da Capo, $17.50). History tends to cast the early years of America in a glow of camaraderie, but there were many conflicts between the Founding Fathers--and none more important than the clash between Washington and Jefferson. In The Great Divide, acclaimed historian Thomas Fleming examines how the differing temperaments and leadership styles of Washington and Jefferson shaped two opposing views of the presidency and the nation, and how this rift profoundly influenced the next two centuries of America's history and resonates to the present day.
