About the Author
The late Lance Banning was Professor of History at the University of Kentucky. His other books include The Sacred Fire of Liberty: James Madison and the Founding of the Federal Republic, also from Cornell, and Jefferson and Madison: Three Conversations from the Founding.
What People are Saying About This
"No one who has followed Banning's account of Madison's development... will read The Federalist or plot the trajectory of his career in quite the same way again. This is no small achievement."
"Banning's treatment of James Madison is original and brilliant. His book is a landmark to the scholarship of the American republic and to an essential Founder. The Sacred Fire of Liberty will remain the authority on Madison for years to come."
"Brilliant and original.... The Sacred Fire of Liberty is a challenging book, bristling with ideas and filled with fine shades of emphasis and meaning. Yet there is... no jargon or academic obfuscation, and the attentive reader should have no trouble following the argument."
"Well researched and eloquently rendered.... An essential addition to the scholarship on the New Republic."
