Première phrase
For anyone interested in political thought in action, the United States during the 1770s and 1780s is perhaps the most exciting period in the country's history. Lire la première page

The political background of the birth of our Constitution 23 juin 2003
Par Maria Beilke - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I highly recommend "The Anti-Federalist Papers and the Constitutional Convention Debates" along with the companion volume "The Federalist Papers." Reading these two books will give you both sides of the arguments that revolved around the creation and adoption of our Constitutional government. "The Anit-Federalist Papers.." contains an excellent introduction by Ralph Ketcham, the complete Anti-Federalist papers and Constitutional Convention Debates with commentaries, an Index of Ideas, and cross-references to "The Federalist Papers."
The original intent of the Convention of States was to simply amend the Articles of Confederation, but instead it set out to frame an entirely new constitution. The Conventional debates began on May 29, 1787, in Philadelphia, with the "Virginia Plan" as the topic of the debates. This was James Madison's plan to strengthen the national government. However, not all our founding fathers wanted a centralized government. Statesmen such as Patrick Henry and John DeWitt argued for a decentralized government with a minimal central government. These men saw that the government as depicted in the Constitution would not represent the people adequately and that rights and liberties recently won from England would be lost.
This book is a must-read for anyone who wants to learn about the political thought which shaped our Constitution.

Powerful and passionate prose that will inspire you! 7 avril 1999
Par J. Fay Kelle (jfkelle@mbc.edu) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
These often intense and firey speeches made by the Anti-Federalists or the detractors of the Constitution (as it was being written and then debated) are powerful, passionate and sharp enough to make one feel these words were meant to be weapons, i.e., the front line defense of the freedom and liberty we so easily take for granted today. I feel that much of what is wrong in our political system today was predicted here, and what would constitute the only real solution, i.e., active, democratic citizenship, is also demonstrated here in their willingness to fight against tyranny with reason and passion. How much greater our public debates would be today if this were required reading for all citizens! "Politics" would be thought well of again and refer to what citizens do in noble service to communities, close to home and far away. Do yourself a favor, get inspired again as to the original principles and purpose of democracy, read this book, and believe again! And do something!

Biased edition 15 novembre 2001
Par Kirk F. Mackenzie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
The Federalist Papers and the Anti-Federalist Papers contain the arguments and debate that surrounded the creation of the federal government. The Federalist Papers argue for a strong, centralized federal government. The Anti-Federalist Papers argue for decentralized government, with only the minimal central government necessary - a confederation - to provide for the common interests of the States without becoming a monarchy or dictatorship. It's good to read both sides. Those who feel the U.S. federal government has become too big and too intrusive may be surprised to find themselves more aligned with the Anti-Federalist Papers.
However, I would not recommend this edition. The editor is clearly Federalist. For example, his bias can be found at the bottom of page 214, where he inserts the comment "[Here Mr. Henry strongly and pathetically expatiated on the probability of the President's enslaving America and the horrible consequences that must result.]" Strongly? Pathetically? Expatiated? These are pretty strong words, certainly not the words of an unbiased historian. The "Mr. Henry" he is referring to is Patrick Henry, one of our nation's greatest patriots. The comment is inserted in the middle of one of Patrick Henry's speeches. The editor's bias casts doubt on the analysis, comments, historical reference, and background information he has inserted throughout the book, ostensibly to provide a frame of reference for better understanding the actual documents. If the frame of reference is tilted, your understanding risks being tilted.
Read the Anti-Federalist papers, by all means. But get an edition with no bias, or a bias in favor of the anti-federalist viewpoint.

Concerns of the Founders 25 août 2014
Par Richard Sitts - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
It is interesting, while reading this book, what the concerns of the founders and their contemporaries where when considering and ratifying the constitution. They recognized the concerns of corruption, ambitious men seeking power for themselves and expressed concerns about what this constitution might lead to. Chief amongst their concerns was that the Federal Government instituted under this constitution would eliminate the state governments and assume all power unto itself. While that hasn't happened yet, it is interesting how 223 years later how the federal government takes more and more upon itself the as the legislator and decider of how things will happen at the local level. Washington now decides what curriculum will be in our schools, how our children are to be taught and even what they will eat at lunch (breakfast and dinner in some places). They determine how our buildings are to be built, they decide all issues of health care policy, Federal Judges routinely knock down locally (city and state) ordinances and statutes and tell us we are not capable of governing ourselves. They are working on a one size fits all society. While we did relatively well with this constitution and the subsequent bill of rights for most of the preceding 223 years, it is almost as though many of the the worst fears of the anti-federalists of central government usurpation are coming true. To those who love big government and are always willing to trade some of their liberties and freedoms for more safety and security, this will all seem to be just a bit of falderal. To those who think that government best serves when it is local this will give them some pause.

Found it a good book takes you into the beginning debates of the constitution I recommend it and also the federalist papers for the full debate on both sides back when it was written.
