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.
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.
The valid and reasonable thinking portrayed by scholars of America for defining the fate of future generations is worth reading.
