In times of political turmoil, if not constitutional crisis, Americans often return to the papers in The Federalist for perspective and guidance. Professor David Lay Williams of DePaul University will discuss the political problems outlined in The Federalist, explain how the Constitution was designed to overcome those problems, and address how the solutions are working in practice today.
