The Federalist: Design for a Constitutional Republic

Front Cover
University of Illinois Press, 1994 - History - 181 pages
"Throughout this scrupulously researched interpretation of The
Federalist papers, Carey provides a glimpse of our Republic's original
design. He shows us what kind of federal union The Federalist's
authors had in mind, and indicates how we have strayed from their intent."
-- Paul Gottfried, National Review
"The best book yet published on The Federalist." --
Paul Peterson, The Review of Politics
"Serious scholars of American politics will find it stimulating
and useful in deepening their own understanding of the American regime."
-- Charles E. Umbanhowar, Perspectives on Political Science
"Likely to become a classic in its own right. The Federalist
is excellent: well organized, carefully considered, incisive, lucid, concise,
and masterful." -- Ellis Sandoz, author of A Government of Laws:
Political Theory, Religion, and the American Founding
