About the Book

The Federalist Papers are a collection of 85 articles and essays written by James Madison, John Jay, and Alexander Hamilton to promote the ratification of the US Constitution. Up to the 20th century, the collection was usually referred to as The Federalist.They were intended to persuade people to accept the Constitution. In Federalist No. 10, Madison argues for a vast, commercial republic and explores ways to prevent majority faction domination. In Federalist No. 84, Alexander Hamilton argues that the proposed Constitution's multiple freedom-protecting clauses collectively constitute a "bill of rights." The best explanation of what has come to be known as "Federalism" is provided by James Madison. An "incomparable explication of the Constitution" may be found in The Federalist Papers.Hamilton turned down three of Morris's essays, and Morris declined the invitation. Duer later wrote in favor of the three Federalist authors under the pen name "Philo-Publius," which is based on Hamilton's pseudonym Publius and may mean either "Friend of the People" or "Friend of Hamilton."The three men produced 85 articles in all for six months. Madison is regarded as the father of the Constitution, while Hamilton served as the first secretary of the Treasury.

About Author

Alexander Hamilton,John Jay and James Madison

Alexander Hamilton: Recruited James Madison and John Jay to write under the pseudonym under which the series would be written. Gouverneur Morris and William Duer were considered for the role but rejected by Hamilton Under the pen name Philo-Publius, Duer was able to have three pieces defending the Constitution published. John Jay: The Federalist Papers were written by John Jay, who would later serve as Chief Justice of the United States. Jay became ill after only contributing 4 essays, and was only able to write one more before the end of the project. James Madison: The Federalist Papers are believed to have been authored by James Madison and Alexander Hamilton, respectively. John Jay wrote number 64 on Hamilton's list, not number 54, which is a well-known inaccuracy. Although almost all statistical analyses indicate that Madison wrote the disputed writings, no one will ever be able to be certain of this.
