The Federalist Papers The Federalist Papers consist of 85 articles and essays written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and John Jay promoting the ratification of the United States Constitution. Seventy-seven were published serially in The Independent Journal and The New York Packet between 1787 and 1788. Though the authors of The Federalist Papers foremost wished to influence the vote to ratify the Constitution, in Federalist No 1 they explicitly set that debate in broader political terms: At the time of publication the authorship of the articles was a secret, although observers discerned the identities of Hamilton, Madison, and Jay. TITLE: The Federalist Papers GENRE: Constitution, America, American, law, politics, political science, history, historical, legal.
