I see that some of my friends have been reading the Federalist papers. Herbert Hoover has been much maligned, but he was well educated, and a decent writer. I think this is a must-read for anyone interested in conservative American ideology.

His The Challenge to Liberty (1934) is also good, as is his autobiography (especially the first volume).
