"The rise of the Jeffersonian party is a phenomenon in American history that has often attracted the attention of historians. However, little examination has been made of the actual instrumentalities with which the principles of Jeffersonian democracy were implemented or rejected. This study traces, from the nebulous beginnings to the first great victory in 1800, the formation in national politics of the party organization which lay behind the elevation of Jefferson to the presidency." - publisher.
