James Madison and Alexander Hamilton were indeed an odd couple. Madison was polite and precise, a healthy hypochondriac who was universally respected. Hamilton was mercurial and often rude; he inspired either love or hate in his contemporaries. Despite their differences, however, it was the sweet-tempered James Madison and the abrasive Alexander Hamilton, devoted students of the Enlightenment, who provided the major impetus in the campaign to write and ratify the American Constitution. Most publications about these particular Founders describe either the great friendship between Madison and Thomas Jefferson or the animosity between Hamilton and Jefferson. This book details the tenuous friendship between Madison and Hamilton, the impact of that relationship on the framing of the Constitution, and how that friendship was affected. Readers will gain insight into the critical influence of the Enlightenment on these men as it formed their political thinking and ultimately framed the United States Constitution.
