Three Lives of James Madison : Genius, Partisan, President
by Noah Feldman




Overview -
A surprisingly controversial look at the three distinct arcs of Madison’s career that explores how he redefined the United States in each one of these political “lives.”

James Madison is revered as the Father of the Constitution but rarely described as a radical. Yet Madison fundamentally changed the United States no less than three times. As a founding “genius” he designed the Constitution and wrote the Bill of Rights. As a “partisan” he co-founded the Democratic-Republican Party and transformed the face of American political rivalry. And as the first wartime president, Madison took the United States to war and won—inventing economic sanctions as a weapon along the way. Now, Noah Feldman—author of critically acclaimed books on the Supreme Court and the U.S. Constitution—presents this Founding Father in a brand new light with a new interpretation of his life, actions, and ideas.
