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
