Klappentext

'What makes this thoroughly researched study all the more enjoyable is McCoy's accomplishment as a biographer. He knows Madison; he is acquainted with the man rather than with an historical figure. As a result, the reader stands beside Madison in the stormy, antebellum decades.' -- James Robertson in the Richmond News Leader.

Zusammenfassung
James Madison lived a truly extraordinary life, from a sickly teenager, through to a leading figure in the American Revolution and 'father of the constitution', to an old age in which he witnessed the effects of his Revolutionary actions. This is a prizewinning highly personal biography.
