The Federalist papers
First Racehors Publishing edition.
Now introduced by eminent civil libertarian, constitutional scholar, and New York Times bestselling author Alan Dershowitz, The Federalist Papers are a must-have for all scholars of history and government and all Americans. Widely considered to be among the most important historical collections of all time, The Federalist Papers were intended to persuade New York at-large delegates to the Constitutional Convention to accept the newly drafted Constitution in 1787. Authored in parts by Hamilton, Madison, and Jay, together as the pseudonym of Publius, the documents have been referred to and heavily cited countless times in all aspects of American government and politics. Together, the eighty-five Federalist essays stand among the Constitution of the United States, the Declaration of Independence, Common Sense , and other work by the Founding Fathers that helped build and solidify the foundation of American democracy. With its rich history and a new introduction from Alan Dershowitz, one of the most prominent legal minds in the country, The Federalist Papers will educate you on the groundwork that shaped the greatest country in the world.
