Abstract
Peter Onuf’s essay in All Over the Map: The Origins of American Sectionalism measures the cost of diversity in constituencies: eventually geography tears a nation apart or supplies the preconditions for its destruction. James Madison’s Federalist No. 10 argues that large republics are possible, a thesis (obliquely) opposed to Onuf’s. Our Constitutional Logic investigates.
Keywords
