Education: Yale University; Cambridge University. Alexander Hamilton: Documents Decoded. Definitely have a much better picture of those nation-forming days and look forward to reading more of his books. Without the support of these powerfully persuasive barnds. This is an impressive look into one of the founders of our nation.
All editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. A classic of American political thought, The Federalist is a series of eighty-five essays by three authors— Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay —the purpose of which was to gain support for the proposed new Constitution of the United States, a document that many considered too radical. Without the support of these powerfully persuasive essays, the Constitution most likely would not have been ratified and America might not have survived as a nation. Hamilton, Madison, and Jay—three of our most influential founders—comment brilliantly on issue after issue, whether it be the proper size and scope of government, taxation, or impeachment. Today lawmakers and politicians frequently invoke these commentaries, more than years after they first appeared. Written in haste and during a time of great crisis in the new American government, the articles were not expected to achieve immortality.
