Editorial Reviews

The Historian
An excellent introduction to some fascinating aspects of Madison's thought.
Dale H. Crouthamel
No one interested in the founding fathers of our country will be able to put this work down. The theme is timely and the text well written. I would hope teachers of early American history would adopt this text as a supplement both on the college and seminary level.
