Despite his major role in early American history, James Monroe has been the subject of limited scholarship, due largely to the difficulty of locating his papers, especially in a published collection. Most Monroe scholarship is based on only 25% of his papers and a great mass of material - over 25,000 items - remains mostly unknown and unused ... until now.

Compiled and edited by Daniel Preston, the project will provide access to the massive and widely scattered Monroe Papers, enabling scholars to revisit Monroe's role in the birth and infancy of the United States"--Page [4] of volume 1 cover."@en ;
