Biography of James Madison, focused on his contributions to the US Constitution, the Federalist Papers, Bill of Rights, and overall political acumen. It follows his career progression through state office in Virginia, member of Congress, Secretary of State, and two terms as President. The interplay among personalities of Madison, Hamilton, and Jefferson are explored in depth. It covers at a high level the War of 1812 and some of the mistakes made by Madison in that conflict. The author takes a fact-based analytical approach, which leaves Madison’s personality in the background. It is not quite as much fun to read as some of my favorite non-fiction wordsmiths, but still insightful and worthwhile.
