The journal Polity has published an essay written by Associate Professor of Government Robert W. T. Martin in its April issue. “James Madison and Popular Government: The Neglected Case of the 'Memorial,'” according to the paper’s abstract, “re-examines a classic source for Madison's early liberalism, the ‘Memorial and Remonstrance against Religious Assessments’ (1785), to establish Madison's pre-1790 analysis of—and genuine commitment to—the popular element of popular government. As a result, the article challenges elitist, conservative interpretations of a ‘Hamiltonian’ Madison as well as those who chart a major philosophical shift in the 1790s." Polity is the journal of the Northeastern Political Science Association.
