Overview

While James Madison and James Monroe are frequently overshadowed in the pantheon of America’s Founding Fathers, they were both instrumental in shaping the nation—and went on to occupy the White House for 16 consecutive years. A Companion to James Madison and James Monroe features more than 30 essays from leading academics and eminent historians that consider various aspects of the lives and legacies of our fourth and fifth presidents. Taken as a whole, these readings, divided into two sections, serve as definitive biographies of each Founder. Individual essays explore a specific theme or episode in the lives of each man, addressing such issues as critical friendships and collaborations, political thought, views on slavery, domestic life, and retirement. Grounded in the latest scholarship, A Companion to James Madison and James Monroe provides historians and history students alike with a wealth of new insights into the lives and achievements of two of America’s most accomplished statesmen.
