Fifty five men, representing 12 of the 13 colonies, met in Philadelphia in the summer of 1787 to write the U.S. Constitution. Sixteen of them left the Convention before the final signing. This book, SECRET PROCEEDINGS AND DEBATES OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION, 1787, is a chronicle of that Convention as compiled by three of the dissenters. They were Robert Yates, and John Lansing representing New York, plus Luther Martin from Maryland. This book preceded NOTES OF THE DEBATES OF THE FEDERAL CONVENTION OF 1787, by James Madison, first printed in 1840. Both should be read to get some sense of the early struggle between proponents of State's Rights vs. supporters of a strong Federal, central government. All was not sweetness and light at the founding of our United States of America.

The font used in this book is blotchy and nerve-grating, as if each of the pages came off a Xerox machine.

3 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Geb Sommer on November 2, 2008
'PROCEEDINGS AND DEBATES' is the most important book published about the Constitutional Convention. Luther Martin from Maryland and other delegates to the Convention document the infamous, illegal replacement if the Articles of Confederation by a number of self-serving traitors like Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, George Washington, et. al. Sixty-five men were appointed by their respective States to be members to the Convention; 10 never attended because they 'smelled a rat' as Patrick Henry phrased it; 16 did not sign the Constitution in protest; Rhode Island never sent a representative for the same reason.
Patrick Henry explained: '"I need not take much pains to show, that the principles of this system, are extremely pernicious, impolitic, and dangerous. Here is a revolution as radical as that which separated us from Great Britain." Was he right? Look around you.
