Creating the Constitution

The Convention of 1787 and the First Congress

eBook - 1993
Rate this:
Creating the Constitution presents a different interpretation of the Convention and the First Congress, derived largely from a close reading of Farrand's Records and the Annals of Congress. Among its special features are a critical perspective on the Framers, an examination of Court Whig influence on the Federalists, the identification of a third group-the state Federalists-between the nationalists and states' righters, and a view of the First Congress as distorting the aims of the Convention.
