Synopsis: The Federalist Papers are a series of 85 articles, written between 1787 and 1788, advocating for the ratification of the United States Constitution. They serve as a primary source for interpretation of the Constitution, as they outline the philosophy and motivation of the proposed system of government. The articles were written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay, under the pseudonym "Publius." James Madison is generally credited as the father of the Constitution and became the fourth president of the United States. Alexander Hamilton was an active delegate at the Constitutional Convention, and became the first Secretary of the Treasury. John Jay became the first Chief Justice of the United States. The following representative essays are included in this collection as well as the United States Constitution and the Amendments: "Introduction," by Alexander Hamilton; "Concerning Dangers from Foreign Force and Influence," by John Jay (in four parts); "Concerning Dangers from Dissensions Between the States," by Alexander Hamilton; "The Consequences of Hostilities Between the States," by Alexander Hamilton; "The Utility of the Union as a Safeguard Against Domestic Faction and Insurrection," by Alexander Hamilton and James Madison; and more.

Review: "This country and this people seem to have been made for each other, and it appears as if it was the design of Providence, that an inheritance so proper and convenient for a band of brethren ... should never be split into a number of unsocial, jealous, and alien sovereignties." So wrote John Jay, one of the revolutionary authors of The Federalist Papers, arguing that if the United States was truly to be a single nation, its leaders would have to agree on universally binding rules of governance--in short, a constitution. In a brilliant set of essays, Jay and his colleagues Alexander Hamilton and James Madison explored in minute detail the implications of establishing a kind of rule that would engage as many citizens as possible and that would include a system of checks and balances. Their arguments proved successful in the end, and The Federalist Papers stand as key documents in the founding of the United States.
