About this item

In An Argument Open to All, renowned legal scholar Sanford Levinson takes a novel approach to what is perhaps America’s most famous political tract.  Rather than concern himself with the authors as historical figures, or howThe Federalist helps us understand the original intent of the framers of the Constitution, Levinson examines each essay for thepolitical wisdom it can offer us today. In eighty-five short essays, each keyed to a different essay inThe Federalist, he considers such questions as whether present generations can rethink their constitutional arrangements; how much effort we should exert to preserve America’s traditional culture; and whetherThe Federalist’s arguments even suggest the desirability of world government.
