About the Author
Mary E Webster is a graduate of St. Paul College and the University of Iowa. Her previous easier-to-read edition of The Federalist Papers--Federalist Papers: In Modern Language--has been praised as making the Papers accessible to people who don't consider themselves "scholars." She has worked on this 10th-grade reading level edition since 2001. She is currently working on a study guide to accompany this edition of the Federalist Papers. Webster has a deep love of the United States Constitution and was thrilled to learn that she is related to the Websters who were so important to the country's early history and is a descendant of several signers of The Mayflower Compact.
