New Book Examines A Treasured Document – The Declaration of Independence

08-01-2017 09:29 AM CET | Arts & Culture

Press release from: Savas Beatie LLC

Savas Beatie recently announced the release of The Ultimate Guide to the Declaration of Independence, by authors David Hirsch and Dan Van Haften, which explains how a six-element structure helped Jefferson organize and compose the Declaration.

Drafted by Thomas Jefferson, the logical force of the Declaration facilitated the survival of a nation. The Ultimate Guide to the Declaration of Independence explains the document more thoroughly than any book previously published. With the aid of colorized step-by-step diagrams, the authors deconstruct Jefferson’s masterpiece into the six elements of a proposition to demonstrate how the scientific method is basic to its structure.

Hirsch and Van Haften, the critically acclaimed authors of Abraham Lincoln and the Structure of Reason, are the first to discover and demonstrate Jefferson’s use of the six elements of a proposition. Hirsch and Van Haften diagram and explain how six-element structure helped Jefferson organize and compose the Declaration. The result is a much deeper and richer understanding and appreciation of the Declaration that was not previously possible. This concise full-color examination of one of our nation’s most treasured and important documents is perfect for all ages and especially for those interested in history, the use of language, and logic.

“Hirsch and Van Haften take us inside the Declaration to show us how that nation-making document worked in Jefferson’s time – and still works today,” said Peter Onuf, Thomas Jefferson Professor of History, Emeritus, University of Virginia.

“This book was fun to write because it really is the ultimate guide to the Declaration of Independence,” said authors Hirsch and Van Haften. “We demonstrate the six distinct parts of the Declaration in color and with diagrams. The Guide thoroughly explains the history and meaning of the document in a way never before done. The how and the why of the Declaration’s persuasive force are compelling and beautiful.”
