Classic Books Library presents this brand new edition of “The Federalist Papers”, a collection of separate essays and articles compiled in 1788 by Alexander Hamilton. Following the United States Declaration of Independence in 1776, the governing doctrines and policies of the States lacked cohesion. “The Federalist”, as it was previously known, was constructed by American statesman Alexander Hamilton, and was intended to catalyse the ratification of the United States Constitution. Hamilton recruited fellow statesmen James Madison Jr., and John Jay to write papers for the compendium, and the three are known as some of the Founding Fathers of the United States. Alexander Hamilton (c. 1755–1804) was an American lawyer, journalist and highly influential government official. He also served as a Senior Officer in the Army between 1799-1800 and founded the Federalist Party, the system that governed the nation’s finances. His contributions to the Constitution and leadership made a significant and lasting impact on the early development of the nation of the United States.

The first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution, famously known as the Bill of Rights, elevated the document to the most inspired and valuable statement of human rights in human history, placed important curbs on the power of Federal government and put the recently independent United States of America on an unequaled path of liberty and opportunity that has served its citizens well for over two centuries. The Next 10 Amendments paints a picture of what a modern great nation and an empowered citizenry look like going forward for the next 200 years. Constitutional naysayers often proclaim with such moral superiority "The Founders never imagined this or that advancement or such and such technology," as if that's support for the position the document no longer matters. What the Founders did understand is that future generations would be the only ones qualified to reshape the Constitution and thus the foundation of the country - hence the amendment process. The Next 10 Amendments not only calls for in vivid detail a nationwide Citizen Constitutional Congress, but also it reveals its inner workings in a way that transports the reader into the room in the center of the action. Before you know it, you'll be rooting for Bob Berendzen, a skeptical and passionate, Every-man patriot as he navigates territory unseen since the late 18th century. No powdered wig or sock garter required.

Resume:

This innovative volume explores the evolution of constitutional doctrine as elaborated by the Supreme Court. Moving beyond the traditional "law versus politics" perspective, the authors draw extensively on recent studies in American Political Development (APD) to present a much more complex and sophisticated view of the Court as both a legal and political entity. The contributors—including Pam Brandwein, Howard Gillman, Mark Graber, Ronald Kahn, Tom Keck, Ken Kersch, Wayne Moore, Carol Nackenoff, Julie Novkov, and Mark Tushnet—share an appreciation that the process of constitutional development involves a complex interplay between factors internal and external to the Court. They underscore the developmental nature of the Court, revealing how its decision-making and legal authority evolve in response to a variety of influences: not only laws and legal precedents, but also social and political movements, election returns and regime changes, advocacy group litigation, and the interpretive community of scholars, journalists, and lawyers. Initial chapters reexamine standard approaches to the question of causation in judicial decision-making and the relationship between the Court and the ambient political order. Next, a selection of historical case studies exemplifies how the Court constructs its own authority as it defines individual rights and the powers of government. They show how interpretations of the Reconstruction amendments inform our understanding of racial discrimination, explain the undermining of affirmative action after Bakke, and consider why Roe v. Wade has yet to be overturned. They also tell how the Court has collaborated with political coalitions to produce the New Deal, Great Society, and Reagan Revolution, and why Native Americans have different citizenship rights than other Americans. These contributions encourage further debate about the nature and processes of constitutional change and invite APD scholars to think about law and the Court in more sophisticated ways.
