About the Author:

William B. Allen is professor of political science at Michigan State University. A Ph. D. from Claremont Graduate School, Allen is author of The Federalist Papers: A Commentary, Let the Advice Be Good: A defense of Madison's Democratic Nationalism, and editor of All Cloudless Glory: A Biography of George Washington by Harrison Clark. Gordon Lloyd is the John M. Olin Professor of Public Policy at Pepperdine University. A Ph.D. from Claremont Graduate School, Lloyd is the co-editor ofThe Essential Bill of Rights: Original Arguments and Fundamental Documents, as well as the author of numerous articles on federalism and the founding.


...succeeds admirably in presenting the positive side of the Constitution's opponents...ably recreates the givens of the opponents' side of the ratification debate: the fears and jealousy of a free people and explicit rejection of the Federalist visionof making the United States a mighty and splendid world power. Arresting sentences and superb whole essays, notably those by James Monroe and the Maryland Farmer, still provoke thoughtful consideration of the Constitution....

...the headnotes they wrote to each section...are a strong point in the volume's favor...a useful documentary...their work is not polemic and it is their very activism that makes the book a more interesting one with which to introduce this generation of students to the political thought of the Antifederalists.
