James Wilson, Collected Works (2008)
Liberty Fund Book (February 2008) - James Wilson, Collected Works
set brings together a collection
of writings and speeches of James
Wilson (1742–1798), one of only
six signers of both the Declaration of Independence and the
United States Constitution, and one of the most influential members of
the federal Constitutional Convention in 1787. Wilson’s writings and speeches had a significant impact
on the deliberations that produced the cornerstone documents of our democracy.
Wilson’s signal contribution to the founding of our national government
was his advocacy for both a strong national government and
an open and democratic political system, a position that set him apart
from both Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson.
