The series of essays that comprise The Federalist constitutes one of the key texts of the American Revolution and the democratic system created in the wake of independence. Written in 1787 and 1788 by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay to promote the ratification of the proposed Constitution, these papers stand as perhaps the most eloquent testimonial to democracy that exists. They describe the ideas behind the American system of government: the separation of powers; the organization of Congress; the respective positions of the executive, legislative, and judiciary; and much more. The Federalist remains essential reading for anyone interested in politics and government, and indeed for anyone seeking a foundational statement about democracy and America. This new edition of The Federalist is edited by Robert Scigliano, a professor in the political science department at Boston College. His substantive Introduction sheds clarifying new light on the historical context and meaning of The Federalist. Scigliano also provides a fresh and definitive analysis of the disputed authorship of several sections of this crucial work. From the Hardcover edition.

In The Political Theory of “The Federalist,” David F. Epstein offers a guide to the fundamental principles of American government as they were understood by the framers of the Constitution. Epstein here demonstrates the remarkable depth and clarity of The Federalist’s argument, reveals its specifically political (not merely economic) view of human nature, and describes how and why the American regime combines liberal and republican values. “While it is a model of scholarly care and clarity, this study deserves an audience outside the academy. . . . David F. Epstein’s book is a fine demonstration of just how much a close reading can accomplish, free of any flights of theory or fancy references.”—New Republic “Epstein’s strength lies in two aspects of his own approach. One is that he reads the text with uncommon closeness and sensitivity; the other is an extensive knowledge of the European political thought which itself forms an indispensable background to the minds of the authors.”—Times Literary Supplement

This book tells the story of The Federalist Papers as an accessible approach to the principles of the United States government. When looking at The Federalist Papers or the documents of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, one realizes that the writers of these documents knew what they were doing. After examining the operation of present-day government, it would be surprising if we could speak with equal confidence about the people who operate the institutions of the United States today. The authors of The Federalist Papers and Constitutional Convention documents can help us understand the current principles and practices of the American government - as intended and as accomplished.

Over time the average American has forgotten, if he ever knew, much of the U.S. Constitution, how it came to be and what it holds for all Americans. Owensby takes us back to those years when the founders of our nation and the framers of the Constitution put the wellbeing of the citizen above politics and brought America to greatness. Now, that is threatened and a look back may well be of service.

The Federalist Papers,(#s 1-85), written by Madison, Hamilton and Jay in 1787 are regarded as the third most important historical documents in the United States, after the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution. The Federalist Papers were written in order to explain the need for, as well as to persuade the citizens of the State of New York to support the ratification of the US Constitution. At the time the power and influence of the members of the legal profession and their ability to unconstitutionally control all government as a same hands faction was neither anticipated nor therefore specifically addressed in the US Constitution. It is now an unfortunate fact. These new Federalist Papers were written as a continuation of the original Papers in order to alert the Nation to the illegal actions of the legal profession in unconstitutionally taking over all government and thus undermining the basic implied doctrine of the separation of powers of the US Constitution. Lawyers have successfully taken over 100% of the Judiciary branch of government, and partly as a result, have also successfully become a plurality or a majority of both the House and the Senate. Moreover, a plurality or majority of lawyers have been Presidents of the United States and thereby often also controlled the Executive Branch as well. The result has been effective control of all government by what James Madison called a 'same hands faction' that he described as any group that had a particular interest opposed to the general interest of all. Every Trade Union, Professional and Trade group, as well as any group whose particular interests in the advancements of its members is opposed to the general interest of all constitutes such a group. The members of the legal profession constitute the only single group that can control all government because they and they alone are in a position to control the Judiciary, one of the three branches of government. They have done so, in defiance and direct violation of their oaths of office as officers of the Court and their obligaiton to uphold the US Constitution. The result is that they have transformed what on paper is the best legal system in the world,to arguably one of the worst. A system in which the oxymoronic concept of 'amoral ethics' has replaced the concept of integrity. A system in which frivolous lawsuits make a mockery of justice. A system in which national health care is subjected to the enormous unnecessary cost and budget breaking impact of defensive medecine practiced by health care givers in fear for their financial survival as a result of a lawsuit, even if they do nothing wrong. Who therefore are forced to expend otherwise unnecessary enormous sums of public and private money in 'protective' testing of patients, made necessary to create as complete a potential defense as possible in a frivolous lawsuit. Howard Dean, a top Democrat, when asked "Why won't Congress address tort reform, as part of the new 2010 Health Care Plan?", responded "Because the trial lawyers won't let us" Unless and until the unconstitutional power of the legal profession is broken this Nation will continue to suffer in every area of its national life, even if the people of this land have not yet understood that. These new Federalist Papers were written to provide the legal basis for restoring constitutional government and the breaking of the monopolistic, illegal control by lawyers of all government.

No competing edition of The Federalist offers nearly as much help in grasping Publius' arguments in defense of the new but unratified United States Constitution of 1787 as this new annotated edition by J. R. Pole. Essay by essay--with ample cross-references and glosses on 18th-century linguistic usage--Pole's commentary lays bare the intellectual background and assumptions of Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay; explicates and critiques The Federalist's central concepts, rhetorical strategies, and arguments; and points up the international, national, and local facts on the ground relevant to Confederation Era New Yorkers, the constituency to which The Federalist was originally addressed. Pole's Introduction, a brief chronology of political events from 1688 to 1791, a brief overview of the themes of the essays, the text of the Constitution cross-referenced to The Federalist, and an index of proper names, concepts, and themes that also functions as a glossary further distinguish this edition.

The Federalist Papers constitute a key document in the understanding of the American government. Written by John Jay, James Madison, and Alexander Hamilton, these 85 texts were published between 1787 and 1788 to convince the state of New York to ratify the Constitution. Today, the Papers are studied in courses on American government, American political thought, and constitutional law. However, the size and organization of the full text, notwithstanding its complex political concepts and context, make it difficult for students to apprehend. The Reader's Guide will be a key tool to help them understand the issues at hand and the significance of the Papers then and now. Organized around key issues, such as the branches of the government, the utility of the Union, or skepticism of a national regime, the work will walk the reader through the 85 Papers, providing them with the needed intellectual and historical contexts. Designed to supplement the reading of The Federalist Papers, the guide will help elucidate not only their contents, but also their importance and contemporary relevance.

A selection of nineteen essential essays from The Federalist Papers in their original lengths by James Madison, Alexander Hamilton and John Jay, with notes by Richard Beeman Penguin presents a series of six portable, accessible, and—above all—essential reads from American political history, selected by leading scholars. Series editor Richard Beeman, author of The Penguin Guide to the U.S. Constitution, draws together the great texts of American civic life to create a timely and informative mini-library of perennially vital issues. Whether readers are encountering these classic writings for the first time, or brushing up in anticipation of the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, these slim volumes will serve as a powerful and illuminating resource for scholars, students, and civic-minded citizens. Written at a time when furious arguments were raging about the best way to govern America, The Federalist Papers had the immediate practical aim of persuading New Yorkers to accept the newly drafted Constitution in 1787. In this they were supremely successful, but their influence also transcended contemporary debate to win them a lasting place in discussions of American political theory. The Federalist Papers make a powerful case for power-sharing between State and Federal authorities and have only risen in legal influence over the last two centuries. Beeman’s analysis helps clarify the goals, at once separate and in concert, of Madison, Hamilton, and Jay during their writing, and his selection of some of the most important papers show the array of issues—both philosophical and policy-specific—covered by this body of work.
