Originally published anonymously, The Federalist Papers first appeared in 1787 as a series of letters to New York newspapers exhorting voters to ratify the proposed Constitution of the United States. Still hotly debated and open to often controversial interpretations, the arguments first presented here by three of America’s greatest patriots and political theorists were created during a critical moment in our nation’s history, providing readers with a running ideological commentary on the crucial issues facing a democracy.

Today The Federalist Papers are as important and vital a rallying cry for freedom as ever.

    " I tried to read through this slowly, and give it the due attention that I felt it deserved. I can see vividly from the words how our government was to be set up and what challenges, and advantages the writers of the Federalist papers wished to propose to the people. It was clearly layed out in sections based on branch and subject matter. As a reading material it was dry and boring, as a historical document it was interesting and of course important in understand the foundations of America. "

    " Must read for every American Citizen "

    " The "Federalist Papers," originally a series of 85 articles written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and John Jay, selling the Constitution to the citizens (and their electors) in the state of NY, is a reasoned discussion of the various aspects of the Constitution and a rebuttal of possible (and actual) objections raised to it. Doing a quick read of the work (well, a month's time) doesn't do the work justice, for it is a work of amazing breadth. The work is not an easy work, but reads rather like an 18th c. lawyer's brief -- very well written, but also quite dense. Still, it serves as the best discussion and defense of the US Constitution. So I give it a 5 when it comes to importance and the quality of the writing, but only 4 when it comes to the experience of actually reading it. "

    " I've been very surprised in the absence of biblical reference. I've read a number of the papers and they are all rational and pragmatic, but by what source? "
