The Forgotten Founding Father
James Madison seems to be getting his due these days. Three new biographies have come out in the past year, including a succinct version by Richard Brookhiser, that has garnered much praise. Others by Kevin Gutzman and Jeff Broadwater weigh in at a few more pages, which leads one to ponder when David McCollough or H.W. Brands will weigh in on Madison. He is certainly a founding father worthy of more consideration.
