James Madison: A Life Reconsidered by Lynne Cheney

Email Email Print

James Madison gets a much deserved, detailed and very appreciative biography from Lynne Cheney, a gifted writer and of course a first person observer of the institutions Madison helped craft.  Her new James Madison: A Life Reconsidered surprised me with new facts and perspectives I had never previously considered and I have been teaching Constitutional Law for nearly 20 years, and thus the work product of Madison’s extraordinary early years of national leadership.  The biography traces the entire life but is at its most absorbing in the retelling of Madison’s epic efforts from 1785 through the ratification of the Bill of Rights in December, 1791.  Mrs. Cheney will be my guest tomorrow, along with her husband, and the Vice President’s take on how Madison’s handiwork has fared will be a fascinating backdrop to his wife’s long-term study of the fourth president.
