New Federalist Papers brings together three prominent and highly visible constitutional experts - Alan Brinkley, Nelson W. Polsby, and Kathleen M. Sullivan - to address the threats posed by current challenges to the American Constitution and defend the representative democracy put in place by its framers. Like Hamilton, Madison, and Jay, the authors of New Federalist Papers see danger in the effort to diminish and relocate federal power at the same time that they recognize the importance of the market, of state and local governments, and of the many other institutions on which a healthy society depends. They aim to stimulate debate at a time when there is much at stake, recognizing that it is the task of public discourse to bring about a reasoned consideration of such issues as gun control, term limits, flag burning, the balanced-budget amendment, campaign finance reform, and the attempt to require a "supermajority" in Congress for the passage of controversial legislation.

In the "New Federalist Papers", three prominent writers confront the threats posed by current challenges to the American Constitution.

Eighty-five articles and essays by Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, and James Madison that interpret and promote the US Constitution. Three of America’s Founding Fathers—Alexander Hamilton, General George Washington’s chief of staff and first secretary of the treasury; John Jay, the first chief justice of the United States; and James Madison, father of the Constitution, author of the Bill of Rights, and fourth president of the United States—embarked on an anonymous public relations campaign to promote the ratification of the US Constitution. Beginning in 1787, their articles appeared in three New York newspapers: The Independent Journal, the New-York Packet, and the Daily Advertiser. Written under the pseudonym Publius, their writings were a masterful analysis and interpretation of the Constitution, explaining the principles upon which the US government was founded. To this day, the Federalist Papers remain “an authoritative resource for academics, lawyers, and judges—including Supreme Court justices—to use to interpret the Constitution and to determine its original, or historic, meaning” (National Constitution Center).

Widely considered to be among the most important historical collections of all time, The Federalist Papers were intended to persuade New York at-large to accept the newly drafted Constitution in 1787. Authored in parts by Hamilton, Madison, and Jay, the documents have been referred to and heavily cited countless times in all aspects of American government and politics. Their influence is undeniable, as they remain prevalent in our political climate today. This collection remains a vital benchmark in American political philosophy. Signed by the members of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia on September 17, 1787, the US Constitution is a landmark legal document that comprises the primary law of the federal government and outlines its three chief branches. The Federalist Papers were a rebuttal to the general public of New York’s initial dissuaded response to the idea of the US Constitution. This collection includes both the full text of The Federalist Papers as well as the entire text of the Constitution, so that readers may compare both documents and reference one another at their leisure. In addition to these documents, the book contains a foreword by constitutional scholar Dr. Louis Fisher. With its rich history, The Federalist Papers and the Constitution of the United States will educate you on the groundwork that shaped the greatest country in the world.

The Federalist Papers,(#s 1-85), written by Madison, Hamilton and Jay in 1787 are regarded as the third most important historical documents in the United States, after the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution. The Federalist Papers were written in order to explain the need for, as well as to persuade the citizens of the State of New York to support the ratification of the US Constitution. At the time the power and influence of the members of the legal profession and their ability to unconstitutionally control all government as a same hands faction was neither anticipated nor therefore specifically addressed in the US Constitution. It is now an unfortunate fact. These new Federalist Papers were written as a continuation of the original Papers in order to alert the Nation to the illegal actions of the legal profession in unconstitutionally taking over all government and thus undermining the basic implied doctrine of the separation of powers of the US Constitution. Lawyers have successfully taken over 100% of the Judiciary branch of government, and partly as a result, have also successfully become a plurality or a majority of both the House and the Senate. Moreover, a plurality or majority of lawyers have been Presidents of the United States and thereby often also controlled the Executive Branch as well. The result has been effective control of all government by what James Madison called a 'same hands faction' that he described as any group that had a particular interest opposed to the general interest of all. Every Trade Union, Professional and Trade group, as well as any group whose particular interests in the advancements of its members is opposed to the general interest of all constitutes such a group. The members of the legal profession constitute the only single group that can control all government because they and they alone are in a position to control the Judiciary, one of the three branches of government. They have done so, in defiance and direct violation of their oaths of office as officers of the Court and their obligaiton to uphold the US Constitution. The result is that they have transformed what on paper is the best legal system in the world,to arguably one of the worst. A system in which the oxymoronic concept of 'amoral ethics' has replaced the concept of integrity. A system in which frivolous lawsuits make a mockery of justice. A system in which national health care is subjected to the enormous unnecessary cost and budget breaking impact of defensive medecine practiced by health care givers in fear for their financial survival as a result of a lawsuit, even if they do nothing wrong. Who therefore are forced to expend otherwise unnecessary enormous sums of public and private money in 'protective' testing of patients, made necessary to create as complete a potential defense as possible in a frivolous lawsuit. Howard Dean, a top Democrat, when asked "Why won't Congress address tort reform, as part of the new 2010 Health Care Plan?", responded "Because the trial lawyers won't let us" Unless and until the unconstitutional power of the legal profession is broken this Nation will continue to suffer in every area of its national life, even if the people of this land have not yet understood that. These new Federalist Papers were written to provide the legal basis for restoring constitutional government and the breaking of the monopolistic, illegal control by lawyers of all government.

This book represents perhaps the single most important volume to be published on the Constitution during the Bicentennial. With over sixty contributing authors, it brings together the best of American constitutional scholarship for a comprehensive and provocative discussion of the Constitution's history, its principles and its current meaning. Contributing authors to the book range from historians and political scientists to Congressmen and Supreme Court Justices. Some of the better-known contributors include former Speaker of the House Tip O'Neill, former Chief Justice Warren Burger, Congressman Philip Crane, lawyer Phillis Schlafly, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Leonard Levy, former United States Senator Eugene McCarthy, and the venerable dean of United States historians, Henry Steele Commager.

Differentiated book- It has a historical context with research of the timeThe Federalist Papers is a treaty on free government in peace and security. It is the outstanding American contribution to the literature on constitutional democracy and federalism, and a classic of Western political thought. It is by far the most authoritative text on the interpretation of the US Constitution and an idea of the intentions of the editors. Although Hamilton carefully described the contents of the federalist documents at the end of the first essay, he actually deviated somewhat from his original proposal.In the end, the work of mainly Madison and Hamilton can be divided into two main parts; the first discussing the defects of the current government, the Articles of Confederation, and the second discussing the new constitutions of the different components of the legislative, executive and judicial branches.

The Federalist and the Constitution, whose cause it defended, were created amid the turmoil of political controversy. Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay, authors of The Federalist, were not theorists but fervent partisans in a campaign to gain acceptance—by no means a sure thing at that time—for the new plan of national government which they themselves had largely shaped. Their essays were immediately popular, were quickly collected and reissued in book form, and soon came to be recognized in America and Europe as a landmark in political theory—the basic blueprint for the American system of government. In this new, provocative study, Edward Millican argues persuasively that the authors of The Federalist were not merely laying the groundwork for the American system but were setting forth the principles for the creation of a modern nation-state. He defends this thesis through a systematic analysis of the entire body of The Federalist, taking up each essay and showing how its contents relate to the idea of nationalism. Millican is one of few critics to examine the essays in this thoroughgoing fashion. He concludes that they do not constitute an apologia for states' rights, nor do they establish a passive government that would protect the rich and the privileged. In advancing these ideas, he takes decided issue with many scholars and commentators, including Ronald Reagan and the New Federalists. In One United People, Edward Millican puts forth one of the clearest and ablest expositions of The Federalist now in print. His vigorous advocacy of the theme of nationalism is bound to be controversial. But his reading of this classic of political theory will be one that future commentators must account for.
