Summary:
Beck reworks the Federalist Papers into "modern English" and provides his own illuminating commentary and annotations. For a number of the essays, he includes the viewpoints of both liberal and conservative historians and scholars, making this a fair and insightful perspective on the historical works that remain the primary source for interpreting Constitutional law and the rights of American citizens.
