The American Founding Experience: Political Community and Republican Government

Cover
University of Illinois Press, 1994 - 304 Seiten
Charles Hyneman's last exploration of popular government is a study of particular conditions of the last quarter of the eighteenth century critical to establishing workable self-government, as well as reflections on how these conditions relate to contemporary political life. In this work Hyneman's career-long concern with what he called popular control of government continues. Now, however, the focus is mainly on the character of the populace itself--on political community and responsible citizenship as conditions of effective self-government.
