Editorial Reviews

Review

'Rakove's introduction compresses an incredible amount of material into a coherent, accessible essay that identifies the major themes, people, and events of the constitutional period and sets them in context. Rakove not only synthesizes the most recent scholarship but presents original insights that are worthy of discussion in themselves... Both scholars and undergraduates can learn something from this essay.' - Rosemary Zaggari, George Mason University '[D}istinctive and highly recommendable... especially for the first-time reader unversed in early American history.' - Andrew Glencross, Government and Policy

Jack Rakove is the W. R. Coe Professor of History and American Studies and professor of political science at Stanford University, where he has taught since 1980. He is the author of four books: The Beginnings of National Politics: An Interpretive History of the Continental Congress (1979); James Madison and the Creation of the American Republic (revised edition, 2001); Original Meanings: Politics and Ideas in the Making of the Constitution (1996), which won the 1997 Pulitzer Prize in history; and Declaring Rights: A Brief History with Documents (Bedford/St. Martin's, 1997). He has also contributed essays and articles to numerous scholarly collections, law reviews, and newspapers. In 1998 he testified at the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee hearings on the background and history of impeachment and has served as a consultant and expert witness in the recent litigation over the use of sampling procedures in the decennial federal census.
