His focus is on Madison before he turned thirty-six, the years in which he did his most enduring work, battling with Patrick Henry-the most charismatic politician in revolutionary America, whose political philosophy and ruthless tactics eerily foreshadowed those of today's Tea Party-over religious freedom, introducing his framework for a strong central government, becoming the intellectual godfather of the Constitution, and providing a crucial role at Virginia's convention to ratify the Constitution in 1788, when the nation's future hung in the balance. Signer's young James Madison is a role model for leaders today, a man who overcame daunting personal issues (including crippling anxiety attacks) to battle an entrenched and vicious status quo. His analysis of "Madison's Method," the means by which Madison systematically destroyed dangerous ideas and left in their stead an enduring and positive vision for the United States, is wholly original and uniquely relevant today., Includes bibliographical references (pages 321-353) and index., MWT11340723, Made available through hoopla, Madison, James,1751-1836., Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., New York :PublicAffairs,[2015], Presents an investigation into the intellectual, psychological, and personal life of the least known Founding Father, shedding light on this leader who pushed the American state to achieve its potential no matter the obstacle., Presidents, Read by David Colacci., Signer, Michael., Unabridged., United States, [United States] :Tantor Audio,2015., computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/ttm_9781494592264_180.jpeg, n-us---, online resourcecr, pcc, spoken wordspw, texttxt, unmediatedn, volumenc, xi, 371 pages :illustrations ;25 cm
