Summary
"The threat of foreign and domestic corruption; the balance of power between the federal government and the states and the controversial role of the Supreme Court; the danger of an unrestrained president and the potential remedy of impeachment. During the contest to ratify the Constitution America's founding generation wrestled with key questions and challenges that continue to test our nation today, and their original arguments still have much to teach us. Here are more than sixty newspaper articles, pamphlets, speeches, and private letters from the debate by more than forty writers, including the essential Federalist essays of James Madison and Alexander Hamilton and the insightful, often prophetic Antifederalist writings of "Brutus" and the "Federalist Farmer""--Back cover
