Kevin Gutzman recounted the legislative career of James Madison, which he called the most under-emphasized aspect of his career. Professor Gutzman contends that Madison’s political life was complicated and marked by his contrarian ideas about the need for the Bill of Rights and the failings of the U.S. Constitution, two documents that he assisted in drafting, and his thoughts on the negative impact of political parties. He responded to questions from members of the audience at the Mid-Manhattan Branch of the New York Public Library in New York City. close
