Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates: The Forgotten War that Changed American History tells the little-known story of the Barbary Wars. During the early years of the new republic, America had no navy, and no funds with which to pay the bribes that Morocco, Algiers, Tunis, and Tripoli demanded. However, after American prisoners were made slaves, Jefferson and Adams knew the cost of keeping ships away would be greater than the cost of addressing the problem-but how? Should America remain neutral? Or use military power? 246 pages, indexed, softcover.
