Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Available for the first time in paperback, James Madison: The Founding Father is a lively portrait of the man who essentially fathered our constitutional guarantees of civil and religious liberty. Focusing on the role Madison played at the Continental Congress and in each stage of the formation of the American Republic, Robert Allen Rutland also covers Madison's relationship with his beloved wife, Dolley, his fifty-year friendship with Thomas Jefferson, and his years as a respected elder statesman after serving as secretary of state and fourth president of the United States.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 255-271) and index.

Rutland "has put together a one-volume work that is lively, fast- paced, and extremely revealing. At last Madison comes alive on the printed page! . . . Rutland's story is biography at its best."—Richmond News Leader

"A lively and sympathetic biography by a leading Madison scholar, one which provides the reader with the best succinct treatment of a complex personality, an introverted intellectual with a special genius for politics."—Richard B. Morris

"A wonderfully vivid and appreciative biography by the master Madison scholar. Rutland combines a flair for style with scholarly integrity."—Leonard W. Levy
