The compelling, unfinished autobiography of our last founding father.

"This new edition of The Autobiography of James Monroe, with a lively and insightful introduction by William M. Ferraro, is a great service to our fifth president, to scholars plumbing his life and times, and to general readers. Few men had a more intimate view of the nation’s first half century than James Monroe. Here is what he saw."—Rick Atkinson, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of An Army at Dawn

"This work is a remarkable performance. . . . More important than the actual content of this autobiography is the insight it provides about Monroe’s attitudes and state of mind in the last years."—Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography
