Über diesen Titel


Though "The Federalist Papers" are rightly renowned as a primary exposition of the principles and purposes of the proposed United States Constitution, there were many writers other than John Jay, James Madison, and Alexander Hamilton who in 1787 and 1788 argued for the Constitution's ratification. Indeed, as Herbert J. Storing, Jr. once observed, "[t]hese 'other' Federalist writings carried the main burden of the public defense of the proposed Constitution . . . [and] several of them were vastly more influential than "The Federalist."" In a collection that is certain to make a major contribution to our understanding of the American Founding, "Friends of the Constitution" brings together forty-nine of the most important of these "other" Federalists' writings. Included are the original texts of pamphlets, speeches, and other pro-ratification writings of George Washington, Benjamin Rush, Nicholas Collin, John Dickinson, James Wilson, Tench Coxe, Benjamin Franklin, Noah Webster, Roger Sherman, Fisher Ames, Peletiah Webster, Samuel Tenny, Stephen Hopkins, Oliver Ellsworth, and David Ramsay. Separately they address the underlying themes of the historic Federalist-Anti-Federalist debate: "The Necessity of Union," "Energetic but Limited Government," and "Popular Government and Civic Virtue." The text includes Storing's important assessment of these writings, and the volume includes citations to Storing's monumental seven-volume "Complete Anti-Federalist."Colleen A. Sheehan is a Professor of Political Science at Villanova Univeristy.Gary L McDowell is Director of the Institute for United States Studies at the University of London.


Aside from the authors of the Federalist Papers, there were many others writing cogently for the ratification of the new United States Constitution. This is a collection of 49 Federalist writings, including pieces by George Washington, Tench Coxe and Benjamin Franklin. Separately they address the underlying themes of the historic Federalist-anti-Federalist debate: The Necessity of Union, Energetic but Limited Government and Popular Government and Civic Virtue.
