The Federalist Papers: A Reader’s Guide by Dr. Kyle A. Scott, the Conservative Professor at University of Houston. Highly Recommended. Sold on Amazon.

From the Hillsdale Federalist Paper’s website:

Written between October 1787 and August 1788, the Federalist Papers is a collection of newspaper essays written in defense of the Constitution. Writing under the penname Publius, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay explained the merits of the proposed Constitution, while confronting objections raised by its opponents.

Thomas Jefferson described the work as “the best commentary on the principles of government, which ever was written.”

Comment from Amazon reader on Kindle’s free Federalist Papers epub book:

4.0 out of 5 stars.  Includes Table of Contents
By Kevin in Towson on April 25, 2011
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

This free Kindle edition of The Federalist (with Jay’s name listed first in the Amazon listing) has one advantage over the other edition available free at this time (for which Amazon lists Madison as first author). This (Jay) edition has a table of contents at the beginning so you can jump directly to the paper you want to read. The text seems clean, though the headings seem disproportionately large. That small quibble aside, it seems perfectly adequate for quick reference.
