Editorial Reviews

Review

"Karmis and Norman have done a great service to all teachers and students of federalism. Here, finally, is a comprehensive collection of primary texts in the history of federalist thought. From Althusius to Kant, and from The Federalist Papers to Trudeau, the authors of these texts give compelling evidence that federalism is more than just a government technique, that it is in fact a political response to some of the most intractable problems and conflicts facing complex human societies. In addition to the well selected texts, the editors provide introductions with useful suggestions for further reading."

- Dr. Thomas O. Hueglin, Wilfrid Laurier University

"This Reader traces the intellectual evolution of Federalist ideas from the Renaissance era to the present day and takes us on an exciting journey through the ages, charting the normative steps in the federal discourse. I see this collection of essays essentially as a new handbook for undergraduate and postgraduate students wishing to explore the versatility of the federal idea. Reading through it was tantamount to an insight into the adventures of the federal idea that furnished much food for thought and intellectual stimulation."

- Michael Burgess, University of Kent
