Book Description:

Thomas Jefferson had a radical dream for higher education. Designed to become the first modern public university, the University of Virginia was envisioned as a liberal campus with no religious affiliation, with elective courses and student self-government. Nearly two centuries after the university's creation, its success now seems preordained--its founder, after all, was a great American genius. Yet what many don't know is that Jefferson's university almost failed.
