"Outstanding. Certainly the most systematic, comprehensive, and penetrating analysis of Madison's political thought, the volume is engagingly written, tightly argued, and persuasive in its interpretations."--Jack P. Greene, author of The Intellectual Construction of America and editor of the Encyclopedia of American Political History
"A controversial and compelling case for Madison's consistent liberalism. Deserves a prominent place on the bookshelf of anyone who takes seriously the study of American political thought."--Michael Lienesch, author of New Order of the Ages
"This book will make a major splash among both historians and political scientists and should have substantial appeal to the general reading public. Its most significant achievement is the discovery and explication of the themes that make Madison consistent despite his many changes of position over a long and varied public career."--Forrest McDonald, author of Novus Ordo Seclorum: The Intellectual Origins of the Constitution --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
