This book is the first significant collection of the writings of the fifth President in over a century. A pupil and lifelong friend of Thomas Jefferson, Monroe closed the generation of the Founding Fathers by implementing his vision of a nation stretching from sea to sea, an independent power in world affairs, yet free of foreign entanglements. Monroe's letters, both private and public, are splendidly articulate and full of acute observations. In this volume the reader will find his account of his trip into the western wilderness, turning back at Fort Niagara, narrowly missing an ambush by Indians. From Paris, he sent an official account of the fall and execution of Robespierre, written only days after the event. Included also is the journal of his negotiations for the Louisiana Purchase, ending with a description of his private dinner with Napoleon. In 1814, he wrote an account of entering the city of Washington with President Madison after the British burned the capital. This volume also presents the full diplomatic correspondence leading up to the proclamation of the Monroe Doctrine, including his triangular correspondence with Jefferson and Madison seeking their advice. It has his famous Veto Message on Public Roads demonstrating that the expenditure of Federal funds for highways is unconstitutional. In actuality, it is a full-fledged exposition of Constitutional principles, beginning with the grants of authority by the Kings to the Lords Proprietary, through the constitutions of the colonies-turned-states, the Articles of Confederation and the U.S. Constitution. It is a unique document because Monroe served under all of these governments and helped shape their practices. Finally, this collection offers Monroe's one theoretical work, The People, the Sovereigns. Drawing on his extensive knowledge of classical history, Monroe demonstrates that if sovereignty is held by a king, a group of aristocrats or a monolithic government, the liberty of the people is in danger. But even if the people hold the sovereignty, they will lose their freedom unless the power is divided among legislative, judicial and executive bodies. --from inside jacket
