"The Federalist Papers occupy a unique place among historical discussions of the federal Constitution. Internationally famous as a work of political science, the essays of “Publius” have particular importance to American constitutional theorists who seek to understand the historical meaning of the federal Constitution. The Supreme Court has cited The Federalist Papers in hundreds of cases, and for more than two hundred years every generation of constitutional scholars has debated and discussed the essays in countless books and articles."
