Description
Renowned as the "Father of the Constitution," James Madison was skeptical that the document would endure, and doubted the necessity of the Bill of Rights. This critical biography explains how Madison founded the so-called Democratic-Republican Party despite his dislike of political parties, an action which prefigured the deep political divisions in 21st-century America. Madison's presidency was defined by the chaotic War of 1812, but Kevin Gutzman suggests that this misunderstood founder's greatest accomplishment might have been his efforts to separate church and state.

"Writing with authority and verve, Kevin Gutzman merges James Madison the practical Virginia politician and James Madison the world-class political theorist in this well-rounded biography of one of the most remarkably multifaceted founders of the republic."óJon Kukla
