The Federalist Papers
Publisher: Signet Classic, 2003
Interested in the Constitution? What did the writers mean? What did they intend? The Federalist Papers is a compilation of essays by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay, three of the writers of the Constitution. As the Constitution moved through the states to be ratified, the three collaborated in these writings to explain their intent -- why they wrote it the way they did. Originally called The Federalist, the writings have become a major source for determining what the founding fathers intended when structuring this experiment called democracy.
