Federalism Theory Part 1: Johannes Althusius

My next three posts will discuss theories of federalism. The ultimate goal of these next posts is to establish an understanding of federalism before addressing the American Federal Republic. To accomplish that goal I will examine the federalist theories of Johannes Althusius, Niccolo Machiavelli and Charles-Louis de Secondat, baron de La Brede et de Montesquieu. This first post will explore the political ideas of the Johannes Althusius book, Politica.
