Summary
"Aside from the Constitution itself, there is no more important document in American politics and law than The Federalist - the series of essays that James Madison and Alexander Hamilton wrote to persuade the American people to ratify the Constitution. Today, in an age of angry, polarizing debate over what the Constitution means and how to determine the relevance of the framers' "original intent," the Federalist Papers are once again essential reading. In Liberty's Blueprint legal scholar Michael Meyerson presents a much-needed introduction to how the Federalist Papers were written and the philosophical thinking that shaped the Constitution."--Jacket
