The Federalist, by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay, constitutes a text central to the American political tradition. Written and published in newspapers in 1787 and 1788 to explain and promote ratification of the proposed Constitution for the United States, which were then bound by the Articles of Confederation, The Federalist remains of singular importance to students of liberty around the world.
This book has two binding options: hardback and paperback.
"The present edition... is the most complete and accurate that has yet appeared... Everyone who is interested in either the principles or the practice of government—in the age of the Fathers or in our own era of perplexity—should read it in part at least." —Dumas Malone, History Book Club Review
The premier analysis of the Constitution.
This, together with the Constitution, should be required reading in every high school.
The Federalist is enlightening
The history of how our country came to be is fascinating and I am learning many facts, opinions and ideas that I don’t recall being taught in high school. I am really enjoying this class and recommend it highly for all to know the facts of our country’s past and beginnings.
