Praise for "James Madison: A Life Reconsidered"
by Lynne Cheney
"With this compelling, elegant, original biography, Lynne Cheney brings the great, elusive James Madison back to life. . . ."
--Michael Beschloss, author of "The Conquerors" and "Presidential Courage"
"Lucidly written . . . this is probably the best single volume bio of Madison that we now have."
--Gordon Wood, "New York Times Book Review"
"A lovingly researched tribute to an often underestimated man. It does not explicitly refer to modern controversies. But present-day politics intrudes."
--"The Economist"
"[In this] meticulously researched, richly detailed look at the life and times of Madison, former Second Lady Cheney fleshes out the achievements and struggles of this American founding
father. . . . Authoritative, conversational, certainly confident in its analysis."
--"Publishers Weekly"
"Written with subtlety and grace, ["James Madison"] is as groundbreaking as it is fresh, as enthralling as it is compulsively readable. It is nothing short of a masterpiece. . . ."
--Jay Wink, author of "April 1865" and "The Great Upheaval"
"A nuanced study on its own and a thoughtful presentation by one of today's prominent public intellectuals."
--"Library Journal"
"[Lynne Cheney's] writing is both fluid and polished; the tone is measured and judicious. Her treatment of Madison . . . is informed by a sophisticated knowledge of politics, without in any way being presentist."
--David B. Mattern, senior associate editor, Papers of James Madison, University of Virginia

--"Intellectual Conservative"

Praise for "James Madison: A Life Reconsidered"
With this compelling, elegant, original biography, Lynne Cheney brings the great, elusive James Madison back to life, reminding us of how powerfully this brilliant founder s political and intellectual leadership has shaped the course of American history. In this era in which Madison is too often eclipsed by more histrionic founders, Cheney shows us his crucial, fascinating relationships with Dolley, Thomas Jefferson and an all-star cast, and lets us witness the growth of a world-changing political philosopher. Her book demonstrates why Madison deserves to stand near the center of our early American firmament.

"The Economist"
[A] meticulously researched, richly detailed look at the life and times of Madison. Former Second Lady Cheney fleshes out the achievements and struggles of this American founding father. . . . [A]uthoritative, conversational, certainly confident in its analysis.
"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)
James Madison did as much to put his stamp on the nation as any of the founders, yet too rarely is he given his due in the pantheon of America s statesman. In this stunning, brilliant work, Lynne Cheney rectifies this glaring oversight, and brings Madison to life as never before. Written with subtlety and grace, the book is as groundbreaking as it is fresh, as enthralling as it is compulsively readable. It is nothing short of a masterpiece that deserves to be in the bookshelf of every history buff!
Jay Winik, author of "April 1865" and "The Great Upheaval"
A nuanced study on its own and a thoughtful presentation by one of today s prominent public intellectuals.
"Library Journal"
Cheney might have written a book that made Madison a prop in today s political battles. She did not, which is greatly to her credit and true to the life of the man.
"Washington Post"
After more than twenty-five years working on the Madison Papers, it s not often that I read something about him that is fresh and engaging, and discovers new aspects of his life and character. Cheney s exploration of Madison s health issues, not only as a young man, but throughout his career, is imaginative and groundbreaking. Her writing is both fluid and polished; the tone is measured and judicious; there isn t a strident note in the whole book. And, an added plus, her treatment of Madison as a political actor is informed by a sophisticated knowledge of politics, without in any way being presentist.
David B. Mattern, Research Professor and Senior Associate Editor, Papers of James Madison, University of Virginia
On the whole [Cheney] offers a lucid, well-paced, wonderfully written, and authoritative history. Very well worth your time.
"National Review"

Reseña del editor:

A major new biography of the fourth U.S. president, from New York Times bestselling author Lynne Cheney
James Madison was a true genius of the early republic, the leader who did more than any other to create the nation we know today. This majestic new biography tells his story.
Outwardly reserved, Madison was the intellectual driving force behind the Constitution. His visionary political philosophy eloquently presented in the Federalist Papers was a crucial factor behind the Constitution s ratification, and his political savvy was of major importance in getting the new government underway. As secretary of state under Thomas Jefferson, he managed the Louisiana Purchase, doubling the size of the United States. As president, Madison led the country in its first war under the Constitution, the War of 1812. Without precedent to guide him, he would demonstrate that a republic could defend its honor and independence while remaining true to its young constitution."
