Through a judicious selection of the classic essays from 1787-1788 by Madison, Hamilton, and Jay in defence of the new federal Constitution -- together with key writings by the Anti-Federalists -- Wootton captures the essentials of the 18th-century American debate on federalism in this modernised edition and frames it with a brilliant and engaging Introduction. Includes the U. S. Constitution.
James Neal Madison also is the painter of the lithograph, The Highland Charge at Drummossie Muir, Battle of Culloden, April 16, 1746. Published by Pelican, this vivid, full-color print is in its second edition printing. David Wootton is Anniversary Professor of History, University of York.
