Publisher's Summary

The Federalist Papers

By Alexander Hamilton, John Jay and James Madison

Narrated by Ron Altman, Jennifer Fournier and John Burlinson

This collection of articles on constitutional government was written by three of the most significant figures in the establishment of the United States as sovereign nation. Alexander Hamilton, one of the most influential of the Founding Fathers, was the author of 51 of the 85 articles.  

James Madison, who later served as the fourth president, contributed 29 articles. The remaining five articles were written by John Jay, who was active in a number of public positions, including chief justice, various cabinet posts under Washington and governor of New York.

The original title was The Federalist: A Collection of Essays, Written in Favour of the New Constitution, as Agreed upon by the Federal Convention, September 17, 1787.

Thomas Jefferson described the collection as "the best commentary on the principles of government which was ever written."

should be mandatory

I can't believe I never read or listened to these through high school and college. I don't even remember hearing them discussed. While the narration is pretty dry, the papers themselves are interesting. These should be a must for high school and college history and civics.
