James Madison and the search for nationhood by Robert Allen Rutland( Book )

14 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 1,149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At long last, James Madison has his memorial on Capitol Hill, and in this grand Library building. As the bicentennial of the framing of our Constitution approaches, here we provide monumental evidence that our nation has not forgotten the chief architect and advocate of our still-vital Constitution. Historians will probably agree that James Madison was less effective as a politician than as a statesman, a scholar, and a political philosopher. If the politician must have his eye on the next election, and the statesman on the next generation, this Library, invigorated by the quiet scholarly spirit of Madison, can remind us of the vistas of the past, and future, generations. - Foreword

The Democrats : from Jefferson to Clinton by Robert Allen Rutland( Book )

Interlacing humor into his ongoing narrative, Robert Allen Rutland provides in The Democrats a readable, balanced account of how the Democratic party was founded, evolved, nearly died, and came back in the twentieth century, flourishing as a political melting pot despite numerous setbacks. This updated version of Rutland's much-heralded The Democrats: From Jefferson to Carter provides new insight into the long hiatus in the Democrats' presence in the White House between Carter and Clinton. In additon to analyzing Carter's successes and failures as president, Rutland also examines the forces that went into the Democratic defeats and Republican victories in 1980, 1984, and 1988, concluding with the election of another Jeffersonian Democrat, William Jefferson Clinton. The book ends with an examination of the dramatic results of the 1994 congressional elections that began to alert President Clinton to the challenge he would face in winning reelection in 1996

"Although historians talk about each other's work routinely, they have been reluctant to record their thoughts about the leading practitioners of U.S. history. Robert Allen Rutland attempts to remedy this state of things with this collection named for Clio, the Greek muse vested with the inspirations of history. The volume offers a glimpse of the lives and work of historians who must be considered among the most remarkable from the last half of the twentieth century."--Jacket

The American solution : origins of the U.S. Constitution by Robert Allen Rutland( Book )

11 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tracing the history of events that led to the U.S. Constitutional Convention (1787) and to the eventual ratification of the U.S. Constitution, this book presents numerous reproductions of leaders' portraits, documents, and paintings from the U.S. Library of Congress and other collections. Chapter 1, "Was the Revolution a Blessing or a Curse?" Discusses the need for a national convention, the weaknesses of the Articles of Confederation, and the role of Shays's Rebellion in hastening the formation of the new constitution. Chapter 2, "We All Look Up To Virginia for Examples," describes the dominant role played by this delegation during the convention, while chapter 3, "a Great Compromise and a Great Lesson," and chapter 4, "Doctor Franklin's 'Bon Mot'," feature the numerous compromises required in order to eventually draft a document that was satisfactory to a majority of the delegates. Chapter 5, "The Sacred Fire of Liberty," describes the roles and activities of the Federalists and the Antifederalists. (Jhp)

"Well acquainted with books" : the founding framers of 1787 : with James Madison's list of books for Congress by Robert Allen Rutland( Book )

5 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published to commemorate the Constitution's bicentennial year and remind Americans that books and the life of the mind are vital national traditions, this volume contains both an essay, "Well Acquainted with Books: The Founding Framers of 1787," by Robert A. Rutland, and James Madison's List of Books for Congress, 1783. The essay recounts how books and the ideas conveyed by books were crucial to the founding fathers of this nation. It also identifies those writers, ranging from the ancient Greek and Roman writers on history to contemporary British and French writers, whose influences on the various delegates to the Constitutional Convention were evidenced. Congressman James Madison's list of 307 books that he thought were needed by the first national legislature is then presented. An introduction to this list describes the occasion of its creation and a few of the sources Madison drew upon in preparing it. A list of abbreviations and short titles used by the editors of the Madison papers in the bibliographical notes follows. Included in the entries are the date of original publication and the date of the latest edition or, in certain cases, of an earlier, superior, edition. It is noted that references to the many editions that are incomplete or inferior have been omitted. Abbreviated titles are used and the names of translators, unless specified by James Madison or known to have importantly enhanced the value of a work by their editing or augmentation of it, are not mentioned. The entries are numbered sequentially and footnotes are placed immediately after the volumes to which they refer rather than grouping all of the annotations at the close of the list. Additional readings suggested by Robert Rutland conclude the volume. (Mab)
James Madison : the founding father by Robert Allen Rutland( )

10 editions published between 1989 and 2010 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This engaging and sympathetic biography reveals the prolific founding father who Thomas Jefferson described as "the greatest man in the world." We see Madison the legislator, writer, Secretary of State, president, and elder statesman. Perhaps most importantly, we see a man who believed implicitly in the mutual dependence of democracy and individual freedom and whose life was guided by this philosophy. Accordingly, our constitutional guarantees of civil and religious liberty are in many ways his legacy
A boyhood in the dust bowl, 1926-1934 by Robert Allen Rutland( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Great Depression and Prohibition are ominous memories in most historical accounts. But here is the true story of a little boy who found life full of excitement, wonder, and joy in the small mid-western town of Okemah, Oklahoma. Okemah, where Woody Guthrie once lived and wrote songs, was fighting for existence in the late 1920s and early 1930s as the oil boom ended, cotton fell to ten cents per pound, and Prohibition was in force. Yet this grim scenario frames Robert Rutland's colorful remembrance of a youth filled with adventure, characters, curiosity, and love
