Description

Although Jefferson feared the potential power of a standing army, the historians and scholars who contributed to this book point out that he also contended that “whatever enables us to go to war, secures our peace.” The authors take a broad view of Jeffersonian security policy in the first comprehensive look at the origins, purposes and legacies of West Point, which Jefferson established in 1802. Hardbound, 233 pages.
