Slavery and Jeffersonian Virginia.
“Slavery was a social and an economic institution of such power that it sustained and extended an economic system whose demands went far to determine the domestic and foreign policy of the “agrarian” party in our early history. For the agrarian politics of Jefferson, while possibly benefiting the small freeholder, very closely served the interests of the plantation system, at least as the planters conceived their interests.” (dust jacket)
