The Federalist: Design for a Constitutional Republic

Front Cover
University of Illinois Press, 1989 - Federalist - 181 pages
Carey's introduction is followed by chapters on republicanism, separation of powers, federalism and limited government. An evaluative conclusion rounds out the text which is enriched by endnotes that constitute a usefully annotated bibliography. Carey treats "Publius" as a single authored work notwithstanding the disparate authorship of the 85 essays. Despite the unresolved tensions among the key ideas presented, he argues that a basic unity and therefore a single voice informs The Federalist as a whole. ISBN 0-252-01609-2: $22.95.
