Summary
  • James Madison was a small man whose quiet voice was often drowned by the hubbub of legislative debate, yet his words - as preserved in his speeches, essays, and letters - resound across the centuries with an authority unmatched by any historical figure of his generation
  • James Madison's "Advice to My Country" is designed as a ready reference to Madison's thought, including his most perceptive observations on government and human nature. This compendium brings together excerpts from his writings on a variety of political and social issues, ranging from agriculture to free trade, from religion and the state to legislative power, from friendship to fashion, from slavery to unity. Madison is widely cited by politicians, lawyers, and judges because many of the issues he wrote about, such as education, trade, and support for the arts, have contemporary relevance. This selection of short passages will enlighten those pundits who are prone to misquote Madison or enlist him in support of virtually any position in current political debate
  • With passages cross-referenced to The Papers of James Madison volumes, it will serve as a guide to investigate Madison's views further
