In these pages, Madison emerges as a remarkably resilient politician and an unlikely wartime leader who survived repeated setbacks in the War of 1812 with his popularity intact. Yet Broadwater shows that, despite his keen intelligence, the more Madison thought about one issue - race - the more muddled his thinking became, and his conviction that white prejudices were intractable prevented him from fully grappling with the dilemma of American slavery.
Jeff Broadwater is professor of history at Barton College and author of George Mason, Forgotten Founder.

Good reference book
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Yes. It gave a good history of Madison and his peers. It would be helpful to someone studying Madison. For casual reading it was a little dry.
What aspect of Johnny Heller’s performance would you have changed?
His reading was in a monotone.
