This collection has played a key role in the social sciences curriculum at Shimer College, the Great Books college of Chicago, for several decades. Having benefited from Shimer's excellent curriculum myself, I strongly recommend this text for your own reading list if you are hoping to familiarize yourself with the founding texts of US political thought. There are certainly more comprehensive collections out there, but in terms of value per page, this one is hard to beat.
