    Abstract

    This work is a study of what I call the Jeffersonian ideology of westward territorial expansion. It consists of five chapters, all looking at a different aspect of this ideology, and it focuses on the years 1780-1810, a period when (from a broad perspective) Jefferson can be considered to have been at the height of his political and intellectual career.
