Andrew Burstein and Nancy Isenberg present a dual biography of James Madison and Thomas Jefferson. The authors focus on the third and fourth American presidents' relationship and their affect on the American political system. Professors Burstein and Isenberg argue that although Thomas Jefferson is the more often recognized figure, it was James Madison who played a key role in the development of the two-party system and gave the early push to elect George Washington to the presidency. Mr. Burstein and Ms. Isenberg presented their book in Jefferson’s Library at Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello in Charlottesville, Virginia. They responded to questions from members of the audience. close
