Glenn Beck revisited Thomas Paine#x19;s famous pre-Revolutionary War call to action in his #1 New York Times bestseller Glenn Beck#x19;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 #x1C;original argument#x1D; between states#x19; rights and big federal governmenta debate as relevant and urgent today as it was at the birth of our nation. Adapting a selection of these essential essayspseudonymously authored by the now well-documented triumvirate of Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jayfor a contemporary audience, Glenn Beck has had them reworked into #x1C;modern#x1D; English so as to be thoroughly accessible to anyone seeking a better understanding of the Founding Fathers#x19; 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.
