Great book, although it can be hard to follow at times. The essays are very specific which is helpful in determining different views on certain issues such as the legal system, abortion, federalism, etc. I used this book in my American Government class and it was very helpful.

I highly recommend this product to any graduate student or newly-minted professor of politics, civics, philosophy. It contains classics (Federalist #10 among them), that are pithy, suitably excerpted and frequently referred to, readily available at one's fingertips. Smart purchase -- economical and worth it.
