What does the Constitution really say, and what did the Founders intend to achieve with the government they established?
At a time when our leaders seem to be ignoring the Constitution more than ever, as citizens we must understand the Founders' intent and reclaim this vital tradition. Now ISI is proud to offer an invaluable introduction to the pivotal debates surrounding the Constitution four authoritative and accessible books that lay out the essentials for understanding how we got the Constitution we did and how to understand it today in light of the Founders' debate.
And there was a debate then, as two volumes from ISI's acclaimed Lives of the Founders series make clear. These two concise, engaging biographies capture the lives of Gouverneur Morris and Luther Martin leaders of the Federalist and Anti-Federalist camps, respectively. Another title in this set is Vital Remnants, in which leading scholars from various conservative perspectives revisit the sources of America's greatness and suggests means to restore its weakened foundations. And rounding out the series is Russell Kirk’s masterful work Roots of American Order, in which Kirk describes the beliefs and institutions that have nurtured the American soul and commonwealth from the Hebrew prophets to Philadelphia in 1787.
A vital education in four short books all for one great price.
