A DOCUMENT THAT SHAPED A NATION
The Federalist Papers brilliantly defended what was in its time a revolutionary charter--the Constitution of the United States. Written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay. The Federalist Papers explains the complexities of a constitutional government--its political structure and principles based on the inherent rights of man. Scholars have long regarded this work as a milestone in political science and a classic of American political theory.
