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

12 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 1,153 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 )

16 editions published in 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 675 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

"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 )

9 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 303 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)

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

8 editions published between 1989 and 2010 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This engaging and sympathetic biography provides a revealing portrait of a prolific human being--the man Thomas Jefferson called "the greatest man in the world." Throughout this remarkable book we see Madison the legislator, writer, Secretary of State, President, elder statesman and, perhaps most importantly, as a man who believed most implicitly in the mutual dependence of democracy and individual freedom. Madison was guided by this philosophy. Accordingly, our constitutional guarantees of civil and religious liberty are, in many ways, his legacy
