Additional Information

Thomas Jefferson called The Federalist Papers the best commentary on the principles of government, which ever was written. Over 200 years after the writing of these essays, most commentators — liberal and conservative — still agree.
While The Federalist is indeed an important resource for understanding the meaning of our Constitution, its relevance is based on something deeper. The authors of the essays knew that the principles of our Founding would not always be unquestioned, so they gave us the strongest defense of those principles as part of the immediate political struggle for ratification. The Federalist not only illuminates the meaning of the Constitution's text. It also explains how our Constitution embodies the core principles of the Declaration of Independence and why it must be preserved in the face of present struggles.

In this monograph, Anthony Peacock, professor of political science at Utah State University, offers us a brief guide to The Federalist, a road map illuminating the major issues treated in the essays and explaining their continued relevance for us today. An appendix of important passages on contemporary subjects is also included as a helpful resource for interested readers.

Despite our contemporary challenges, we still enjoy some measure of constitutional government. More important, our Founders have left us with their teaching and example, showing us the way to restore our Constitution to its rightful place. Our Constitution will endure only if our leaders understand why it is defensible, and there is no better argument in favor of the Constitution that The Federalist Papers.

Ever wonder just how the constitution came to be? Why are certain things in the constitution and not others? "How to Read the Federalist Papers" is an easy read and explains the climate of the new nation, the pursuasive arguments for adopting the new constitution and the need of a strong federal government. The book gives background about the authors of the Federalist Papers and I enjoyed that it is easy to understand and is well outlined and short. It is a great way to begin a study on the Federalist Papers. I am part of a Constitution Study group which is now studing the Federalist Papers and found it essential as a good beginning study and a source of additional questions. The tenents of the Federalist Papers are just as pertinent today as they were at the beginning of our nation.
I decided to revisit my Nation's basis and backbone, so purchased this, plus the Anti-Federalist Papers from Amazon. They arrived quickly and perfectly packaged... but what's important is what is IN the box.

To understand what and who we are as Americans... not just as individuals but as a society, a citizenry... it's necessary to understand the intent of our Founding Fathers. If you do that, then the changes in the world, technology, etc. can still be seen through their eyes. It will open our eyes, and it is necessary.

These three documents and books will give anyone willing to think an understanding of the minds and the hearts of those able to provide us all with the structure for our Country and nation. We can, therefore be continuously successful as America if we read, understand... and try hard to not screw it up.

Read these three, and reread them often. I will be doing that with you.
An excellent and informative read on the Constitutional Convention Debates. You'll want to read it a second and third time, but unlike the Federalist Papers, you probably wont need to. Great for American History enthusiasts. Perfect for aspiring enthusiasts!
