The Federalist Papers In Modern Language: Indexed for Today's Political Issues - (Paperback)
By Mary E. Webster
"The Federalist Papers" are among the most important founding documents in the birth of the United States of America. The whole original debate over the Constitution is laid out here in detail for all to see, but most Americans have never read them. Why? Because they were written in the florid and complex language of 18th-century politics.
Now the Federalist Papers have been translated into modern American English. If you can read a newspaper, you can now read the Federalist Papers. See how the Founding Fathers foresaw the problems of impeachment, of corruption in government, of representation and all the other headline-grabbing issues we read about today! This new edition is indexed for today's political issues, a feature found nowhere else! The Clinton Impeachment? Regulatory excess? Bumbling bureaucracy? Gun control? Just see the index and find out what the Federalist Papers say about it. A publishing event of major importance.

If you have struggled with the original writings in old English style you will like this version so much better! I spent most of my time interpreting the language in the original book and got so much more out of this modern language version. This is a great resource for students and anyone studying American History and Government. Wonderful book.
