reading notes

Below are books I've read; under each title you'll find notes I've taken as I've read these books. I hope you'll find some good info to help you as a progressive, and maybe you'll even read some of these books for yourself.

Federalist Papers

Eighty-five essays written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay arguing in support of ratification of the Constitution. Crucial to understanding "original intent" of the Founders as well as giving a (somewhat tilted) view of the contemporary politics surrounding the vote.

All notes are direct quotes; my notes and any clarifying bits are enclosed in [brackets].
