The Federalist Papers are a collection of 85 articles advocating the ratification of the US Structure. Seventy-seven of the essays had been printed serially in The Impartial Journal and The New York Packet between October 1787 and August 1788. A compilation of those and eight others, referred to as The Federalist, was printed in 1788 by J. and A. McLean.
The Federalist Papers function a main supply for interpretation of the Structure, as they define the philosophy and motivation of the proposed system of presidency. The authors of the Federalist Papers wished to each affect the vote in favor of ratification and form future interpretations of the Structure. In response to historian Richard B. Morris, they’re an “incomparable exposition of the Structure, a basic in political science unsurpassed in each breadth and depth by the product of any later American author.”
