Selected Writings of James Madison

Hackett Publishing - 432 Seiten
The writings collected here reflect the Madison who emerges from the best scholarship of the last thirty years -- scholarship to which Ralph Ketcham, as Editor of The Papers of James Madison and in many other ways, has made stunning contributions. Ketcham's Introduction, a brief chronology, the texts of the Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and an index further distinguish this collection.

Seite xxx - A popular government without popular information or the means of acquiring it is but a prologue to a farce or a tragedy, or, perhaps, both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.
Seite xx - The civil rights of none shall be abridged on account of religious belief or worship, nor shall any national religion be established, nor shall the full and equal rights of conscience be in any manner, or on any pretext, infringed.
