Would like to find a book exclusively on Jefferson and his understanding and handling of the Barbary Pirates? He had a better understanding of the dangers they could evoke upon non-believers. More so than the politicians and the people who choose to ignore there are problems with/in this culture.

Nancy Rosen Read the author's note at the end of the book; this is fiction based on some facts. The Barbary Pirates were one thing. Islam today as practiced--in a variety of ways by a variety of sects and cultures--is another. Indeed a fascinating subject that deserves study and of course there are many many books about Jefferson and the other founding fathers.
Liz Just know saw the question, apologize for not keeping up on this site. I also like to delve into history, wish we didn't have to repeat some of it so often.
Wasn't sure how to make these links, I hope this helps.

In fact Jefferson, Adams, JQ Adams, and Benjamin Franklin were all were deeply concerned about the dangers that Islam represented to the new nation. Our ongoing experiences with the 21st century version of the Barbary pirates off the coast of Somalia, most recently today when an American freighter captain was freed from pirate captivity by the US Navy, illustrates a great deal about our prior relations with the "religion of peace" and how our previous leaders reacted.
