The Federalist Papers are as timely today as they were when they were written. Historical context is essential to an understanding of our Constitution and to understanding why the Constitution is still relevant today.

This work combines many of the critical founding documents into a one stop source for reading. It's well worth the 99 cents for the ability to cross reference items within the same text.

The words found here are for three kinds of people: those who know why they love America, those who need to be reminded why they love America, and those who need to be convinced. The editor of this book should be fired.
