"The history of the University of Virginia is, like the larger history of the United States, the story of Thomas Jefferson's vision and of how that vision grew into the lively, democratic place we know today. Mr. Jefferson believed that education was essential to the new republican - an education available universally, not just to those who could afford it. Nearly two hundred years later, within the walls of his academical village, men and women of all backgrounds debate - and often criticize - the ideas of their university's founder, perhaps the best testimony of all to the spirit and success of his vision."--BOOK JACKET. "The University of Virginia: A Pictorial History traces the growth of Mr. Jefferson's favorite project through an appropriately rich pageant of images and text. The book's main chapters, arranged chronologically, follow the rise of the university from its founding "on a plan so broad and liberal and modern, " in Jefferson's words, to John T. Casteen III's initiative for a university of the twenty-first century, where the myriad resources of the Internet are just a click away."--BOOK JACKET.
