The complete texts of the documents that tell the story of the clashes and compromises that gave birth to the Unites States of America. Should the members of the government be elected by direct vote of the people? Should the government be headed by a single executive, and how powerful should that executive be? Should immigrants be allowed into the United States? How should judges be appointed? What human rights should be safe from government infringement? In 1787, these important questions and others were raised by such statesmen as Patrick Henry and John DeWitt as the states debated the merits of the proposed Constitution. Along with The Federalist Papers, this invaluable book documents the political context in which the Constitution was born. This volume includes the complete texts of the Anti-Federalist Papers and Constitutional Convention debates, commentaries, and an Index of Ideas. It also lists cross-references to its companion volume, The Federalist Papers, available in a Signet Classic edition. Edited and with an Introduction by Ralph Ketchum

In kaum einem Bereich spuken so viele Irrtümer herum wie in der Ökonomie. Zudem sind sie so weit verbreitet, dass sie als gültige Lehrmeinung angesehen werden. Themen wie staatliche Zinsmanipulation, Sparen, Inflation, Mindestlöhne oder Branchenrettung, wie die der Banken, sind aktueller und missverstandener denn je. Deshalb ist es wichtig zu wissen, was wirklich hinter den Begriffen steckt, wie sie zusammenwirken und welche praktischen Folgen (staatliche) Eingriffe haben. Niemand könnte ein Verständnis wirtschaftlicher Grundlagen besser vermitteln als Henry Hazlitt. Als einer der ganz Großen der Österreichischen Schule wird er in einem Atemzug mit Mises, Hayek und Rothbard genannt. Seine Begabung für elegante, populäre Darstellungen wirtschaftlicher Zusammenhänge haben dieses Buch entstehen lassen. In 24 kurzweiligen Kapiteln vermittelt er sein umfassendes Wissen, von Steuern über die Idee der Vollbeschäftigung bis zu Preisen und Inflation. Die 24 wichtigsten Regeln der Wirtschaft, ein Klassiker der Ökonomie jetzt auf Deutsch und heute noch so aktuell wie zur Erstveröffentlichung 1946.

The Federalist Papers constitute a key document in the understanding of the American government. Written by John Jay, James Madison, and Alexander Hamilton, these 85 texts were published between 1787 and 1788 to convince the state of New York to ratify the Constitution. Today, the Papers are studied in courses on American government, American political thought, and constitutional law. However, the size and organization of the full text, notwithstanding its complex political concepts and context, make it difficult for students to apprehend. The Reader's Guide will be a key tool to help them understand the issues at hand and the significance of the Papers then and now. Organized around key issues, such as the branches of the government, the utility of the Union, or skepticism of a national regime, the work will walk the reader through the 85 Papers, providing them with the needed intellectual and historical contexts. Designed to supplement the reading of The Federalist Papers, the guide will help elucidate not only their contents, but also their importance and contemporary relevance.
