The Original Argument (Paperback)
By Glenn Beck
Glenn Beck revisited Thomas Paine’s famous pre-Revolutionary War call to action in his #1 New York Times bestseller "Glenn Beck’s Common Sense." Now he brings his historical acumen and political savvy to this fresh, new interpretation of the Federalist Papers, the 18th-century collection of political essays that defined and shaped our Constitution and laid bare the “original argument” between states’ rights and big federal government – a debate as relevant and urgent today as it was at the birth of our nation.
Adapting a selection of these essential essays for a contemporary audience – pseudonymously authored by the now well-documented triumvirate of Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and John Jay – Glenn Beck has had them reworked into “modern” English so as to be thoroughly accessible to anyone seeking a better understanding of the Founding Fathers’ intent and meaning when laying the groundwork of our government. Beck provides his own illuminating commentary and annotations and, for a number of the essays, has brought together the viewpoints of both liberal and conservative historians and scholars, making this a fair and insightful perspective on the historical works that remain the primary source for interpreting constitutional law and the rights of American citizens.
