The Anti-Federalist Papers
Author
Patrick Henry
ISBN
9780486843452
Between the first proposals of a federal Constitution in 1787 and the document's 1789 ratification, an intense debate raged among the nation's founding fathers. The Federalist Papers -- authored by James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and John Jay -- favored the adoption of the Constitution, but other early statesmen opposed its ratification. The latter group, writing under pseudonyms, amassed a substantial number of influential essays, speeches, and letters that warned of the dangers inherent in a powerful central government. Although never collected in as definitive a form as The Federalist Papers, these statements of opposition appeared in various publications and eventually became known as The Anti-Federalist Papers. Some of their arguments were incorporated into the first ten amendments to the Constitution -- the Bill of Rights -- but others remained unaddressed. The persuasive and well-argued statements encompassed by this volume continue to provide a valuable and timely perspective on the necessary limits of power.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Patrick HenryPublisher: Dover PublicationsPublished: 05/21/2020ISBN: 9780486843452Pages: 224Weight: 0.35lbsSize: 7.90h x 5.00w x 0.60d
