Overview

Amidst the whirlwind of Revolution and nation-making, Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence, and Madison, father of the Constitution, engaged in a series of intellectual discussions on the nature of the American experiment. In this thought-provoking study, Lance Banning revisits the intellectual friendship between the two founders and pursues the lines of their debate in the light of two centuries of history. Banning examines Jefferson's and Madison's reflections on the purpose and need for a bill of rights, their discussion of the nature and necessity of "public spirit" in a republic, the usefulness of political rebellion, and upon Jefferson's reminder that "the earth belongs ... to the living." The author adds selected primary documents to enhance each chapter. This interchange of ideas between two of America's greatest thinkers spanned many years and reveals the way in which Jefferson and Madison thought about democracy, public debt, the ownership of property, and the relationship between the present and future generations. Banning provides a glimpse into the intellectual world of Jefferson and Madison, as well as insight into our own.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Banning (The Jeffersonian Persuasion: Evolution of a Party Ideology, 1978) examines Jefferson's views on the Bill of Rights, private property, public debt, and public spirit in relation to the writing of the Constitution. He compares them with James Madison's views using several primary sources, including the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson's First Inaugural Address, and their correspondence. Both men were concerned with problems that still face us today-individual rights and the national debt. Half the book is a reprinting of the author's sources, and the reader should read the documents first and then Banning's essays. In his preface, Banning says that his target audience is not only scholars but Americans who feel that Jefferson and Madison are relevant today. Here he misses his mark because his dry, scholarly style makes this book suitable for academic library purchase only.-Grant A. Fredericksen, Illinois Prairie Dist. P.L., Metamora
