Written by the iconic American statesman, Alexander Hamilton, the original US chief justice, John Jay, and “Father of the Constitution”, James Madison, this compilation of eighty-five articles explains and defends the ideals behind the highest form of law in the United States.

These essays were published anonymously in New York newspapers in 1787 and 1788, and they foresaw many of the headline-grabbing issues surrounding impeachment, corruption, bureaucracy, and regulation that we read about today. Hailed by Thomas Jefferson as the best commentary ever written on the principles of government, The Federalist Papers is now available in a portable, elegantly designed clothbound edition with an elastic closure and a new introduction.

Revolutionary classics of political philosophy, these articles are essential reading for students, lawyers, politicians, and anyone with an interest in the formation of societies. 

Andrew S. Trees earned a Ph.D. in American history and an M.A. in literature from the University of Virginia. He is the author of The Founding Fathers and the Politics of Character as well as two novels, Academy X and Club Rules.
