If you want to appreciate the meaning of the original Constitution and the intent of the Constitutional Convention, it is crucial that you read The Federalist. Originally written under the shared pseudonym of "Publius" as a series of essays in support of the ratification of the Constitution, this text is the fundamental commentary on the United States Constitution.

This reprint of the Gideon edition of 1818 contains corrections by Hamilton, Madison, and Jay. Several other helpful additions include:

  • An extensive introduction by the editors;
  • A Reader's Guide that outlines the arguments of the essays in The Federalist;
  • The original preface to the Gideon edition;
  • Eighty-five essays by Hamilton (51), Madison (29), and Jay (5);
  • A glossary;
  • Ten appendixes that include such important documents as the Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, and the Proceedings of the Annapolis Convention; and
  • The Constitution of the United States and Amendments with marginal cross-references to pertinent references in The Federalist.
