The Federalist Papers, which explain America’s founding principles and the practical means for securing them, were instrumental in winning the hard-fought battle to ratify the Constitution. Yet today, high-school students often find it difficult to read them, if they are even encouraged to do so. To address that problem, and to help America’s future leaders to better understand the principles embedded in the Constitution, One Generation Away has published a book of essays, The Roots of Liberty, Unlocking the Federalist Papers, by leading constitutional scholars that explains the central themes of the Federalist Papers in a language that upper-level high-school students of today will more easily comprehend.
