Institute of Public Affairs

by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay

The Federalist Papers are 85 essays written in the 1780s arguing for the ratification of the United States Constitution. They analyse the process of government, the function of political parties, and the question of how to restrain over-mighty rulers. The Federalist Papers had a major influence on Australia's founding fathers.
