Storing's view, are somewhat paradoxically entitled to be counted among the Founding Fathers and to share in the honor and study devoted to the founding.
Storing here offers a brilliant introduction to the thought and principles of the Anti-Federalists as they were understood by themselves and by other men and women of their time. His comprehensive exposition restores to our understanding the Anti-Federalist share in the founding its effect on some of the enduring themes and tensions of American political life. The concern with big government and infringement of personal liberty one finds in the writings of these neglected Founders strikes a remarkably timely note.

This book—which I had left over from a class I took in college but had never read—is a short summary of the arguments made in against the US Constitution. It purports to cast these arguments in a positive light; i. But, there really does seem to have been a lack of clarity and unity in the anti-federalist position that makes this hard to do.
The greatest me This book—which I had left over from a class I took in college but had never read—is a short summary of the arguments made in against the US Constitution. The greatest merit of this book is that it gives us a chance to go back and revisit, in brief, some of the central questions of American government. The Federalist Papers are probably the best place to go for this; although, here, the counterargument is made explicit.
Apr 27, Rebecca rated it it was amazing. I loved this book. The issues my change but the fundamental debates on how to move forward, deal with issues, and how power is allotted are still the same. I studied the Anti-Federalists in college but it was so much more interesting to read about them now given our current political landscape.
Feb 28, Steven Taylor rated it really liked it Shelves: american-politics. It is succinct and interesting review of Anti-Federalist thought.
Apr 17, Ross Emmett rated it really liked it Shelves: mc , political-theory.
