Hardcover. Brand-new hardcover with dustjacket 1997 W.W. Norton. Unread; superclean; only light shelfwear. 179pp. Language: English. '3 prominent and highly visible writers confront the threats posed by current challenges to the American Constitution. In the aftermath of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, 3 of its most gifted participants--Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay--wrote a series of 85 essays, published in newspapers throughout the nation, defending the proposed new government against its opponents. Those essays, known today as the Federalist Papers, explain the philosophical basis of the Constitution and defend the idea of republican government against charges that it would lead to tyranny. Today's political controversies call into question some of the principles that have shaped government through most of this century. New Federalist Papers, written by 3 constitutional experts, defends the representative democracy put in place by the framers of the Constitution. Like Hamilton, Madison, and Jay, the authors of New Federalist Papers see danger in the effort to diminish and relocate federal power. They recognize that it is the task of public discourse to bring about reasoned consideration of such issues as gun control, term limits, flag burning, the balanced budget amendment, and campaign finance reform.'--from the publisher.
