The Federalist’s View of Federalism

"The Federalist's View of Federalism." Essays in Federalism. George C. S. Benson, et al., Claremont: Institute for Studies in Federalism, 1961. 21--64.

A careful reading of The Federalist, Diamond argues in this essay published in 1961 by the Claremont Institute for Studies in Federalism, reveals that—beneath an acknowledgement and dutiful defense of the new Constitution’s federal elements—Publius in truth had grave reservations about them.

Portions of this essay appear in “What the Framers Meant by Federalism.”
