"Most famous and influential American political work."Howes, U.S.IANA, 1960-1950 H114c. The views of Hamilton, Madison and Jay expressed in this landmark work have a lasting effect on U.S. Constitutional Law. 85 of the essays were almost entirely written by Hamilton and Madison, and probably only 5 were written by Jay. Most of the individual essays appeared under collective pseudonym "Publius" in NewYork newspapers and journals from October 27, 1787 to early June 1788. The essays were intended to encourage ratification of the proposed constitution by New York State, but were immediately recognized as the most compelling commentary on the most radical form of government the world had seen.
