Wills, noted classicist and former writer at The National Review, debunks many common Anti-Federalist notions that have survived in popular American political and social culture. He analyzes these arguments in light of the intents of the Founders and the Federalists, citing primary sources and viable secondary research in defining terms, discerning intentions and explaining that the opposition to the Constitution still survives in popular but constitutionally unfounded Right-Wing lore. Willis uses his classical education, experience as a political writer and judicious use of historical methodologies to provide a clearer understanding of both the Founding and of the constitutionally defined role of government. Moreover, this is a clear and simple read that should be accessible to everyone.
