Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

The complete texts of the documents that tell the story of the clashes and compromises that gave birth to the Unites States of America.

Should the members of the government be elected by direct vote of the people?
Should the government be headed by a single executive, and how powerful should that executive be? Should immigrants be allowed into the United States?
How should judges be appointed?
What human rights should be safe from government infringement?

In 1787, these important questions and others were raised by such statesmen as Patrick Henry and John DeWitt as the states debated the merits of the proposed Constitution. Along with The Federalist Papers, this invaluable book documents the political context in which the Constitution was born. 

This volume includes the complete texts of the Anti-Federalist Papers and Constitutional Convention debates, commentaries, and an Index of Ideas. It also lists cross-references to its companion volume, The Federalist Papers, available in a Signet Classic edition. 

Edited and with an Introduction by Ralph Ketchum

The notes from the discussion of the Constitution at the end make this a six-star book. If you want to understand the "intent of the founding fathers" this book and the Federalist Papers will give you a better understanding of the process and intent. Side effect: you wwill be horrified by the sheer volume of ignorance of our current legislators,

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating Background On Constitutional Debates And Criticisms Of Centralized Power 24 décembre 2010
Par RepublicConstitution - Publié sur
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
Many Americans were clearly quite satisfied with the structure of government under the Articles of Confederation and it had indeed served them well. However, many elements also wanted to strengthen and energize the government so that it could get more done. This brought with it many positive developments but also a number of stark dangers. The Anti-Federalists, led by Patrick Henry and a few others, made powerful and compelling arguments against the concept of Federalizing into a Union in what they considered to be a rush, especially since things appeared to be working so well already. Indeed, many of the early debates already included issues that would continue to emerge later: slavery, the lack of need for a standing army, the danger of taxation, the danger of a centralized government with a monopoly on force of arms, the danger of creating a new aristocracy, and the danger of a powerful money class who could buy political influence in the Executive, Judicial, and Legislative branches. Unfortunately we have seen many of the warnings of the Anti-Federalists come to fruition and their worry of turning the presidency itself into a near monarchy may also be seen to develop at some future point. This is a wonderful read for anyone interested in U.S. history, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the early elements of the slavery debate, and much more.

You know, this book consists of general remarks attributed to those representing states at The Federal Convention of 1787 and those participating in individual state's ratification of the Constitution which are the closest to factual evidence existing of anti-federalist thought processes and positions.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Reader beware! 13 octobre 2016
Par Hachie maven - Publié sur
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
This was a required reading for a US Constitutional Class. Reader beware, the language is late 1700's and while it is English, it is not the vernacular of today's speech. This is a hard read, or at least it was for me. However, it is important literature to understanding our constitution and the opinions of the men who formed it. Highly recommended for anyone interested in US history or constitutional questions.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Federal Constitution with Anti-federal tendencies? How does that work? 29 avril 2015
Par Tim - Publié sur
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
My paperback version of this classic is four hundred and some pages thick yet easy to lay aside and pick up again. I refer to this documented boxing match each time I find myself in a political boxing match regarding the foundational causes of problematic governmental issues and also some positive aspects. Not the easiest read and only half of the full story,but if you take your time you'll learn who won the match.
