Harvard Law professor Noah Feldman’s new book, The Three Lives of James Madison: Genius, Partisan, President, is a sweeping reexamination of the Founding Father who transformed the United States.
The New York Times called it an “illuminating and absorbing political biography.”
In his lectures about Madison, Feldman brings to life the man whose creativity and tenacity gave us America’s distinctive form of government – and whose collaborations, struggles, and contradictions define the United States to this day.
The Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, Feldman teaches constitutional and international law. He is known for his ability to frame and explain complex legal issues as well as foreign policy, politics, and religion.
Called “one of the stars of his generation” by Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, Feldman writes a weekly column for Bloomberg News, specializing in real-time analysis of today’s big legal cases. Esquire named him one of the “75 most influential people of the 21st century.”
