Must Reading on American Government

by FanOfTimeLifeBooks on Feb 22, 2010

The Federalist Papers is a collection of essays written in 1787 by Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, and James Madison. The purpose of these essays was to win support for the newly written Constitution. Though a bit dry, these essays are instrumental in understanding the structure and powers of the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of our American government. The authors also point out some of the problems under the Articles of Confederation and the threats of Britain and Spain. This is must reading for anyone who teaches American government or who simply wants a good understanding of the United States Constitution. Highly recommended.
