The Anti-Federalists, in Herbert J. Storing's view, are somewhat paradoxically entitled to be counted among the Founding Fathers and to share in the honor and study devoted to the founding.

I loved this book.  I find it endlessly fascinating how little our political dialogue has changed since our country’s founding.  The issues my change but the fundamental debates on how to move forward, deal with issues, and how power is allotted are still the same.  I studied the Anti-Federalists in college but it was so much more interesting to read about them now given our current political landscape.

Really more of a long-ish essay than a book (~70 pages)--it was originally written as the opening to the multi-volume edition of the Anti-Federalist Papers. It is succinct and interesting review of Anti-Federalist thought. Worth a read for anyone interesting in the founding of the US/the proto-party system that started to emerge around the question of the Philadelphia convention and the ratification of the Constitution.

Today's students are always surprised reading Storing's short intro to the Anti-Federalists because they discover that, if they had been alive at the time of the Constitutional debates, they might well have been anti-federalists!

Too academic in nature for a quick read. However, I appreciated the evaluation of the anti-federalist arguments.
