This monumental survey of James Monroe's life and career is exhaustively researched and documented, a work of patient and perceptive scholarship that sheds a good deal of light on the politics and personalities of the early American Republic." —Publishers Weekly

One feels sure that we now have, for a long time to come, the book on Monroe to which all will turn." —Ralph Ketcham, Virginia Magazine of History and Biography
