If Men Were Angels is an examination of the political theory of James Madison authored by Richard K. Matthews. As the jacket notes, it is the "second volume in his revisionist trilogy on the Founding that began with The Radical Politics of Thomas Jefferson and that will conclude with Alexander Hamilton and the Creation of the Heroic State. The purpose of the book is twofold. First, it "tries to construct the complete political theory of James Madison" (p. xvii). 4. "If Madison worshipped a deity, it would be reason-not the substantive Reason of philosophers as diverse as Plato, Hegel, and Marcuse, but the instrumental reason of the modern age" (p. 22).

Neither civic humanist nor democrat, this Madison is a distrusting, calculating, and pragmatic Machiavellian Prince. And, Matthews contends, what has been written about Madison's political thought has been limited in scope and skewed in interpretation. A devastating critique of Madison's political thought". If Matthews is right - that Madison and Jefferson 'were, from an ideological perspective, worlds apart' - then we must reassess just about everything we think we know about ideology and politics in the early republic". - Journal of American History.
