James Madison led one of the most influential and prolific lives in
American history, and his story--although all too often
overshadowed by his more celebrated contemporaries--is integral to
that of the nation. Madison helped to shape our country as perhaps
no other Founder: collaborating on the Federalist Papers and the
Bill of Rights, resisting government overreach by assembling one of
the nation's first political parties (the Republicans, who became
today's Democrats), and taking to the battlefield during the War of
1812, becoming the last president to lead troops in combat.
In this penetrating biography, eminent historian Richard
Brookhiser presents a vivid portrait of the "Father of the
Constitution," an accomplished yet humble statesman who nourished
Americans' fledgling liberty and vigorously defended the laws that
have preserved it to this day.
