Overshadowed by his fellow Founders, David O. Stewart restores James Madison to his proper place as the most significant framer of the new nation, through his successive partnerships with mentor George Washington, co-author Alexander Hamilton, political ally Thomas Jefferson, successor James Monroe, and his wife, Dolley.

Stewart makes a compelling case for Madison's centrality and tells an absorbing story of his friendships with the most influential men of his times. David O. Stewart is an award-winning author and the President of the Washington Independent Review of Books. His bestselling books include THE SUMMER OF 1787, which won the Washington Writing Award; IMPEACHED; AMERICAN EMPEROR; and the novel THE LINCOLN DECEPTION which was hailed as the best historical novel of the year by Bloomberg View.

    James Madison, one of the major writers of the Constitution and of the Bill of Rights, was not a large man, but he made a huge impact. In Madison's Gift, David O. Stewart brings us back to this pivotal moment in history and show's us how Madison's relationships with five other amazing people (Alexander Hamilton, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe, and Dolly Madison) shaped him, America, and the world. It provides facts and insights about all of these people, and I recommend it to readers interested in American history.

    This book can make for tedious reading, as it feels like the story moves only at the most incremental pace. As each relationship is introduced, the story often goes back to the beginning, leaving the reader to feel like the book never really moves forward. This is not quite true and the relationships presented here are interesting and illuminating for those interested in the early years of the American republic. Still, the pacing and narrative could have been better organized and written, as well as the case for the uniqueness of Madison's relationships better articulated.
