JAMES MADISON AND THE STRUGGLE FOR THE BILL OF RIGHTS

by | Read by Richard Poe

History • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Shy, sickly, unprepossessing, and very young at the time, future President James Madison played a crucial role in shaping the American Constitution, which he advocated, and framing the Bill of Rights, which he initially opposed. This book exhaustively details the ideas, politics, and personalities that led to the adoption of the first 10 amendments and how Madison influenced them. The author apparently intends his 336 fact-filled pages for those wishing to drench themselves in the subject. With his clarion newscaster's voice, reliable Richard Poe protects the 11-plus-hour exegesis from dryness. His excellent phrasing provides additional clarity to an already-accessible text.
