Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences&#151;biographical, historical, and literary&#151;to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. <P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt class=MsoNormal>A classic of American political thought, The Federalist is a series of eighty-five essays by three authors&#151;Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay&#151;the purpose of which was to gain support for the proposed new Constitution of the United States, a document that many considered too radical. Most of the &#147;papers were published in periodicals as the vote on approving it drew near. Without the support of these powerfully persuasive essays, the Constitution most likely would not have been ratified and America might not have survived as a nation.<P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt class=MsoNormal> <P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt class=MsoNormal>Beginning with an assault upon the country's first constitution, the Articles of Confederation, the authors of The Federalist present a masterly defense of the new system. Hamilton, Madison, and Jay&#151;three of our most influential founders&#151;comment brilliantly on issue after issue, whether it be the proper size and scope of government, taxation, or impeachment. Today lawmakers and politicians frequently invoke these commentaries, more than 200 years after they first appeared.<P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt class=MsoNormal> <P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt class=MsoNormal>Written in haste and during a time of great crisis in the new American government, the articles were not expected to achieve immortality. Today, however, many historians consider The Federalist as the third most important political document in American history, just behind the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution itself. They have become the benchmark of American political philosophy, and the best explanation of what the Founding Fathers were trying to achieve.<P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt class=MsoNormal> <P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt>Robert A.

  • "From October 27, 1787 to April 2, 1788, 77 essays [in defense of the new Federal constitution] were published in the semi-weekly "Independent Journal" of New York, entitled "The Federalist". They were so acute and mas- sively learned in their exposition of the true intent of the Constitution, that even the courts have accepted themas authoritative comments in doubtful cases, and eight more were added when they were collected in book form [in1789]. A classic textbook of political science."
  • "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."@en
  • "The series of essays that make up The Federalist constitute one of the key texts of the American Revolution and the democratic political system that was created after independence. Written in 1787-1788 they stand as an eloquent testimonial to democracy."
  • "The John Harvard Library edition of the classic American essay with an introduction by Cass Sunstein."
  • "The Federalist represents one side of one of the most momentous political debates ever conducted: whether to ratify, or to reject, the newly-drafted American constitution. To understand the debate properly requires attention to opposing Antifederalist arguments against the Constitution, and this new and authoritative student-friendly edition presents in full all eighty-five Federalist papers written by the pseudonymous 'Publius' (Hamilton, Madison, and Jay), along with the sixteen letters of 'Brutus', the prominent but still unknown New York Antifederalist who was Publius's most formidable foe. Each is systematically cross-referenced to the other, and both to the appended Articles of Confederation and US Constitution, making the reader acutely aware of the cut-and-thrust of debate in progress. The distinguished political theorist Terence Ball provides all of the standard series editorial features, including brief biographies and notes for further reading, making this the most accessible rendition ever of a classic of political thought in action."
