However, this is my chance to give the set five stars, as when first published I studied them in detail and found them absolutely invaluable for an excellent understanding of the pros and cons very eloquently expressed on the question of approving our constitution. The men who are recorded in these works demonstrated an intelligence which would appear to be lacking in our current and recent crop of political leaders. These authors, both for and against exhibited amazing foresight into what could be experienced in our future (from their time frame). And, they were right.
These books should be required reading for our students, and a real understanding of trade offs, risks and benefits of governmental considerations would be made very clear. Of course, such education will never happen.
With few exceptions, anyone reading these works will be surprised at the depth of thinking, regardless of which side of the question they stood, exhibited by these sincere forefathers It's an eye opener. Many of these men were absolutely brilliant and with a sincerity not found today, or in my memory, of our politicians.
