Glenn Beck revisited Thomas Paineand#8217;s famous pre-Revolutionary War call to action in his #1 andlt;Iandgt;New York Timandlt;/Iandgt;es bestseller andlt;Iandgt;Glenn Beckand#8217;s Common Senseandlt;/Iandgt;. Now he brings his historical acumen and political savvy to this fresh, new interpretation of andlt;Iandgt;The Federalist Papersandlt;/Iandgt;, the 18th-century collection of political essays that defined and shaped our Constitution and laid bare the and#8220;original argumentand#8221; between statesand#8217; rights and big federal governmentand#8212;a debate as relevant and urgent today as it was at the birth of our nation.andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;Adapting a selection of these essential essaysand#8212;pseudonymously authored by the now well-documented triumvirate of Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jayand#8212;for a contemporary audience, Glenn Beck has had them reworked into and#8220;modernand#8221; English so as to be thoroughly accessible to anyone seeking a better understanding of the Founding Fathersand#8217; intent and meaning when laying the groundwork of our government. Beck provides his own illuminating commentary and annotations and, for a number of the essays, has brought together the viewpoints of both liberal and conservative historians and scholars, making this a fair and insightful perspective on the historical works that remain the primary source for interpreting Constitutional law and the rights of American citizens.
