Federalism is the final volume in Teaching American History’s series of core document volumes on American government. It joins Separation of Powers, Congress, The American Presidency, Political Parties, The Judiciary, and The Supreme Court. Together, these volumes provide a wide-ranging yet detailed account of the major institutions and ideas that constitute American government. The forty-five documents in Federalism provide a historical overview of how Americans have viewed federal-state relations, as well as an in-depth analysis of the principles of federalism and its role in preserving free and effective government.
