"This country and this people seem to have been made for each other, and it appears as if it was the design of Providence, that an inheritance so proper and convenient for a band of brethren ... should never be split into a number of unsocial, jealous, and alien sovereignties." So wrote John Jay, one of the revolutionary authors of The Federalist Papers, arguing that if the United States was truly to be a single nation, its leaders would have to agree on universally binding rules of governance--in short, a constitution. In a brilliant set of essays, Jay and his colleagues Alexander Hamilton and James Madison explored in minute detail the implications of establishing a kind of rule that would engage as many citizens as possible and that would include a system of checks and balances. Their arguments proved successful in the end, and The Federalist Papers stand as key documents in the founding of the United States.

1. This book should be a text book in every middle and high school system in the United States. It would educate today's generations on the thinking of the founding fathers.
2, Every adult American citizen should read it and digest the thoughts of these founding fathers. Then use this information as a foundation for study the Constitution of the United States and the history of this nation over the last 238 years.
Then, maybe we could better understand what is happening today and work to correct the course of our nation.
