In An Argument Open to All: Reading The Federalist in the 21st Century, renowned legal scholar Sanford Levinson takes a novel approach to what is perhaps America’s most famous political tract. Levinson examines each essay of The Federalist, not for original intent of the Founders, but instead for the political wisdom it can offer us today. Levinson, in conversation with Steve Vladeck, a nationally recognized expert on the role of the federal courts in the war on terrorism, and Gene Healy, distinguished author and expert on executive power, the role of the presidency, and federalism, will explore the relevance of The Federalist to today’s politics.
