Herbert J. Storing'sComplete Anti-Federalist, hailed as "a civic event of enduring importance" (Leonard W. Levy,New York Times Book Review), indisputably established the importance of the Anti-Federalists' writings for our understanding of the Constitution. As Storing wrote in his introduction, "If the foundation of the American polity was laid by the Federalists, the Anti-Federalist reservations echo through American history; and it is in the dialogue, not merely in the Federalist victory, that the country's principles are to be discovered." This one-volume edition presents the essence of the other side of that crucial dialogue. It can be read as a genuine counterpart to theFederalist Papers; as an original source companion to Storing's brilliant essayWhat the Anti-Federalists Were For(volume I ofThe Complete Anti-Federalist, available as a separate paperback); or as a guide to exploring the full range of Anti-Federalist writing.The Anti-Federalistmakes a fundamental source of our political heritage accessible to everyone.
