Students Guide to American Political Thought by George W. Carey
Book DescriptionWho are the most influential thinkers, and which are the most important concepts, events, and documents in the study of the American political tradition? How ought we regard the beliefs and motivations of the founders, the debate over the ratification of the Constitution, the historical circumstances of the Declaration of Independence, the rise of the modern presidency, and the advent of judicial supremacy? These are a few of the fascinating questions canvassed by George W. Carey in "A Student's Guide to American Political Thought." Carey's primer instructs students on the fundamental matters of American political theory while telling them where to turn to obtain a better grasp on the ideas that have shaped the American political heritage.

Books By Author George W. Carey
Constitutional Morality and the Rise of Quasi-Law, Hardback (June 2016)
Americans are ruled by an unwritten constitution consisting of executive orders, signing statements, and other quasi-laws designed to reform society, Bruce Frohnen and George Carey argue. Consequently, the Constitution no longer means what it says to the people it is supposed to govern and the government no longer acts according to the rule of law.
Federalist, Hardback (January 2001)
"The Federalist" was written and published in newspapers in 1787 and 1788 to explain and promote ratification of the proposed Constitution for the United States, which was then bound to the Articles of Confederation. This text presents the Gideon edition, and includes notes and cross-references.
Popular Government, Paperback (January 1977)» View all books by George W. Carey
Examines the political institutions of men. The author explains that popular governments, unless they are founded upon and consonant with the evolutionary development of a people, will crumble from their own excesses.
