Review:

...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.
