The Federalist Papers are available in many different mediums and can be accessed free online.

I purchased this for the convenience of having all the papers in one place (and not having to print every one separately) for which it is great. This book gets three stars because the book was not proofread adequately -- there is a large chunk of papers where two words are squished into one likethis and it lacks an index.

HASH(0xa55b5078) out of 5 stars Includes Table of Contents April 25 2011
By Kevin in Towson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This free Kindle edition of The Federalist (with Jay's name listed first in the Amazon listing) has one advantage over the other edition available free at this time (for which Amazon lists Madison as first author). This (Jay) edition has a table of contents at the beginning so you can jump directly to the paper you want to read. The text seems clean, though the headings seem disproportionately large. That small quibble aside, it seems perfectly adequate for quick reference.

HASH(0xa597ca50) out of 5 stars Should be Required Reading! Jan. 19 2013
By T. A. Rudnicki - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Written by Alexander Hamilton, one of the Founding Fathers of the US, the 'Federalist Papers' are a series of articles written for a New York newspaper. Mr Hamilton goes into detail on the thought process behind the US Constitution and clearly shows the intent behind the Constitution and the BIll of Rights. In this respect, the 'Papers' clearly and concisely outline what the Founding Fathers meant and should be used by citizens, political leaders, and the court system to accurately adjudicate the true meaning behind our Constitution.
I found this collection of writings by Mr Hamilton to be a very humbling eye opener as it can clearly be seen how far off track the US is getting with "modern" interpretation of the Constitution. By reading these papers, you can clearly see that the Founding Fathers were well educated in both literature and history and attempted to produce a framework of laws governing the US that would preculde pitfalls that earlier Republics have fallen into. Yes, the US is a Constitutional Republic and the Founding Fathers never intended nor wanted the US to be a Democracy. We are a Rule of Law nation not a majority rule one and the 'Federalist Papers' makes that more than abundantly clear.
For example, in Federalist #26, Mr Hamilton clearly explains the Second Amendment, clarifying that the 'militia' is all able-bodied men, and that the right to bear arms meant that citizens should have the same type of arms as the standing army because the full intent of the Second Amendment is to prevent government tyranny, not to protect hunting rights.
I believe that the 'Federalist Papers' should be required reading by all High-School and college students in preparation for them to become well-informed voting citizens and able to preserve and protect the Republic our Founding Fathers have created.

HASH(0xa597ca20) out of 5 stars Excellent edition April 21 2013
By Hailey McPherson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The formatting on this one is better than I expected. The paragraphs, spacing and everything look great on my Kindle. Some of these public domain books look terrible, but this one looks as good as any polished publication.

The table of contents lists every paper and every click goes where it's supposed to go. The only bad thing is that there's no link back from each paper to the TOC.

This edition has all of the Publius credits as originally written, but it also lists each paper's true author.

I was surprised by how well it was done.

It goes without saying that the papers themselves are brilliant and this book is one of the most important documents in American history.

HASH(0xa5de6ca8) out of 5 stars to monarchistic Great Britain and the individual Constitutions of the 13 colonies Nov. 8 2014
By David N. McLaren - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An eye opener. They really were human, these Founding Fathers. Wise at times. Blind at times. Desperate to ditch the Articles of Confederation and willing to bend any proposition toward that end. Pettyfoggers and explorers setting out on a somewhat uncertain adventure. Gives a view of our founding you don't get in school: the Constitution is not a pristine gift sprung from the forehead of a god-like Zeus. It is cobbled together from scraps of experience ranging from Greco-Roman philosophy and historical experience, to monarchistic Great Britain and the individual Constitutions of the 13 colonies. Well worth the very long slog.

HASH(0xa570aa50) out of 5 stars Must Read Book for Democracy Loving People Sept. 18 2013
By Shashikant Nishant Sharma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have read this book over two times to gain deep insight into the content of the book. The essays written during the formative years of American democracy are still valid to read. This book has highly thought provoking ideas which got evolved during the shaping of American Democracy which has paved way for many small and big countries of the globe. I have got new meaning in the understanding of the Indian democracy after reading this book which is really a collection of scholarly essays written on various themes of democracy, civil liberty, universal human rights, socio-economic and political equity and equal opportunities for all to make the Earth a better place for human race. You must read this book to get new meaning of the terms which are frequently used in modern universal approach of resource management for human race.
The valid and reasonable thinking portrayed by scholars of America for defining the fate of future generations is worth reading.
