Selected Writings of James Madison

Capa
Hackett Publishing - 432 páginas
The writings collected here reflect the Madison who emerges from the best scholarship of the last thirty years -- scholarship to which Ralph Ketcham, as Editor of The Papers of James Madison and in many other ways, has made stunning contributions. Ketcham's Introduction, a brief chronology, the texts of the Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and an index further distinguish this collection.
