Format: Paperback
This should be required reading for every high school student in America.
How does one understand the brilliance of our founding fathers and why they rejected total dem- ocracy, vs. democratic republic.
Montesque had insight lacking in our political leaders today.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had this book when in college, but it deteriorated at such a degree that I had to throw it away. I had been searching for it since then, until I was told to look for it on your web site. The book is a must read , in order to preserve our democratic or republican way of life.
