Were the Anti-Federalists Right to oppose the ratification of the United States Constitution? Has the unarrested growth of federal power justified their worst fears and endangered civil liberty?

H. Lee Cheek, Professor of Political Science and Philosophy at Brewton-Parker College and an AHI Senior Fellow, and Jack Rakove, William Robertson Coe Professor of History and American Studies at Stanford University, will debate these and other questions on 1 April, at 7 pm, in room 250 of the Humanities Building, University of Colorado, Boulder.

The Intercollegiate Studies Institute, an educational non-profit organization devoted to furthering ” a better understanding of the values and institutions that sustain a free and humane society” will sponsor the debate in conjunction with the university’s Center for Western Civilization.
