Liberty's Blueprint is a fascinating glimpse not only into the creation of The Federalist Papers but also the rarely mentioned friendship between Madison and Hamilton. Historians have too long focused only on the antipathy and downright aggressive dislike that festered between the two men and completely left out the fact that they actually got along well enough to create what President Teddy Roosevelt called “on the whole the greatest book.”
Long considered the purview of only conservatives, The Federalist Papers have new life breathed into them by Meyerson, who asserts that they are as necessary now as then for determining the true meaning of the Constitution. For anyone interested in the law, its interpretation and implementation, Liberty's Blueprint should be required reading. As a bonus, it is actually entertaining reading as well.
