The Federalist Papers ($7.00) Featured Product First Principles Series How to
Read the Federalist Papers Softcover, 107 pages Thomas Jefferson called The
Federalist Papers the best commentary on the principles of government, which
ever was written. Over 200 years after the writing of these essays, most
commentators — liberal and conservative — still agree. While The Federalist is
indeed an important resource for understanding the meaning of our Constitution,
its relevance is based on something deeper. The authors of the essays knew that
the principles of our Founding would not always be unquestioned, so they gave us
the strongest defense of those principles as part of the immediate political
struggle for ratification. The Federalist not only illuminates the meaning of
the Constitution's text, it also explains how our Constitution embodies the core
principles of the Declaration of Independence and why it must be preserved in
the face of present struggles. In this monograph, Anthony Peacock, professor of
political science at Utah State University, offers us a brief guide to The
Federalist, a road map illuminating the major issues treated in the essays and
explaining their continued relevance for us today. An appendix of important
passages on contemporary subjects is also included as a helpful resource for
interested readers. Despite our contemporary challenges, we still enjoy some
measure of constitutional government. More importantly, our Founders have left
us with their teaching and example, showing us the way to restore our
Constitution to its rightful place. Our Constitution will endure only if our
leaders understand why it is defensible, and there is no better argument in
favor of the Constitution that The Federalist Papers.

billion in fiscal 2002 alone. In fiscal 2001, $1.4 billion in federal
food stamps were improperly (read: fraudulently) distributed. In their
relentless effort to change the culture of waste in government, the
