Summary
"Short, plain, balding, neither soldier nor orator, low on charisma and high on intelligence, Madison cared more about achieving results than taking the credit. To reach his lifelong goal of a self-governing constitutional republic, he blended his talents with those of key partners. It was Madison who led the drive for the Constitutional Convention and pressed for an effective new government as his patron George Washington lent the effort legitimacy; Madison who wrote the Federalist Papers with Alexander Hamilton to secure the Constitution's ratification; Madison who corrected the greatest blunder of the Constitution by drafting and securing passage of the Bill of Rights with Washington's support; Madison who joined Thomas Jefferson to found the nation's first political party and move the nation toward broad democratic principles; Madison, with James Monroe, who guided the new nation through its first war in 1812, really its Second War of Independence; and it was Madison who handed the reins of government to the last of the Founders, his old friend and sometime rival Monroe"--

Summary
James Madison, one of the Founders of the U.S. and its fourth president, seems to fade into the background in comparison with his revolutionary comrades, who were physically taller and more extroverted. However, Madison was a brilliant writer and skilled collaborator, making him indispensable to the success of the new republic the Founders were designing. In Madison's Gift, acclaimed author David Stewart highlights Madison's abilities and details his work with five collaborators -- four other Founders and his wife Dolley. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
