Overview

Here, in a single volume, is a selection of the classic critiques of the new Constitution penned by such ardent defenders of states' rights and personal liberty as George Mason, Patrick Henry, and Melancton Smith; pro-Constitution writings by James Wilson and Noah Webster; and thirty-three of the best-known and most crucial Federalist Papers by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay. The texts of the chief constitutional documents of the early Republic are included as well.

David Wootton's illuminating Introduction examines the history of such American principles of government as checks and balances, the separation of powers, representation by election, and judicial independence—including their roots in the largely Scottish, English, and French new science of politics. It also offers suggestions for reading The Federalist, the classic elaboration of these principles written in defense of a new Constitution that sought to apply them to the young Republic.

I am asking the person who has posted "anonymous" reviews to stop spamming all of these in an attempt to draw people to your website. It is annoying c**p like you've displayed that make people such as myself declare that I will make it my life's mission to NEVER contribute to your website when you bother people like this. For the people looking at ratings and reviews to get an idea whether or not to purchase a book, I do apologize for ruining the ratings. Please dismiss mine and recalculate the average score. Thank you.
