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

20 editions published between 1979 and 1995 in English and held by 2,021 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Clio's favorites : leading historians of the United States, 1945-2000( )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,991 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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

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

16 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 1,138 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 American solution : origins of the United States Constitution by Robert Allen Rutland( Book )

16 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 814 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)

The papers of James Madison by James Madison( Book )

in English and held by 731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Papers of James Madison project, housed at the University of Virginia, was established in 1956 to publish annotated volumes of the correspondence and writings of James Madison, the Virginia statesman most often remembered for his public service as "Father of the Constitution" and as fourth president of the United States. The published volumes provide accurate texts of Madison's incoming and outgoing correspondence, informative notes on textual and subject matters, and comprehensive indexes. They are incomparably rich sources for students of Madison's life and valuable research tools for those interested in the general history of the period in which Madison lived (1751-1836). The project has collected more than 27,000 copies of documents related to Madison's life, including letters, essays, notes, diaries, account books, ledgers, wills, legal papers, and inventories. The project serves the public by translating into print these decaying and often nearly illegible manuscripts, thereby preserving them for future generations and making them easier to use. The published volumes also make the contents of Madison-related documents the originals of which are housed in some 250 archives worldwide easily accessible to libraries and interested individuals anywhere books travel. The Presidential Series, covering the years 1809 to early 1817, centers largely on Madison's record as commander-in-chief during the War of 1812, the first full-scale conflict to be waged under the U.S. Constitution of 1787. Madison's correspondence as president deals with a particularly wide range of concerns national politics, international diplomacy and war, Indian affairs, the construction of the nation's capital, even petitions from ordinary citizens for charity and mercy to which Madison responded. -- Publisher

James Madison : the founding father by Robert Allen Rutland( )

12 editions published between 1989 and 2010 in English and held by 129 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
