When we think of Thomas Jefferson, a certain picture comes to mind for some of us, combining his physical appearance with our perception of his character. During Jefferson’s lifetime this image was already taking shape, helped along by his own assiduous cultivation. In Jefferson on Display, G. S. Wilson draws on a broad array of sources to show how Jefferson fashioned his public persona to promote his political agenda. During his long career, his image shifted from cosmopolitan intellectual to man of the people. As president he kept friends and foes guessing: he might appear unpredictably in old, worn, and out-of-date clothing with hair unkempt, yet he could as easily play the polished gentleman in a black suit, as he hosted small dinners in the President’s House that were noted for their French-inspired food and fine European wines. Even in retirement his image continued to evolve, as guests at Monticello reported being met by the Sage clothed in rough fabrics that he proudly claimed were created from his own merino sheep, leading Americans by example to manufacture their own clothing, free of Europe. By paying close attention to Jefferson’s controversial clothing choices and physical appearance--as well as his use of portraiture, architecture, and the polite refinements of dining, grooming, and conversation--Wilson provides invaluable new insight into this perplexing founder.

Die glänzend erzählte Lebensgeschichte der legendären ägyptischen Königin Kleopatra VII., letzter weiblicher Pharao Ägyptens, ist heute hinter Mythen, übler Nachrede und märchenhafter Schönheit verborgen. Stacy Schiff , Pulitzer-Preisträgerin, zeigt in ihrer Biografie dank intensiver Recherche und neuer Auswertung antiker Quellen nicht nur die laszive Verführerin und das intrigante Machtweib, sondern enthüllt eine außerordentlich starke Herrscherin – selbstbewusst, versiert in politischem Kalkül, diplomatisch und visionär. Detailfülle und Mut zum zugespitzten historischen Urteil, sprachliche Eleganz und provokantspritzige Porträts der mächtigen Mit- und Gegenspieler an Kleopatras Seite versetzen den Leser ins alte Reich am Nil mit seinem weltläufigen Charme und seiner machtpolitischen Unerbittlichkeit.
