Synopsis

Aside from the Constitution itself, there is no more important document in American politics and law than the Federalist Papers- the series of pamphlets written by Alexander Hamilton and James Madison to explain the meaning of the proposed Constitution to the American people and persuade them of its importance. These papers provide a window into the framers' thoughts on the most divisive issues of American government- the powers of the President, the dividing line between Congress's authority and that of the states, the role of the Supreme Court, and the importance of the Bill of Rights. Liberty's Blueprint offers an essential introduction to how the Federalist Papers were written, the philosophical thinking that shaped the Constitution, how the framers meant the various clauses to be understood, and why they are still vitally important today.

Michael I. Meyerson is a professor of law at the University of Baltimore, specializing in constitutional law and American legal history. The author of over twenty scholarly articles on Constitutional law and legal history, he lives in Ellicott City, Maryland.
