Editorial Reviews

Review

"A witty and energetic study of the ideas and passions of the Framers."--New York Times Book Review

"Bristles with wit and intellectual energy."--Christian Science Monitor

"A masterpiece. McDonald's status as an interpreter of the Constitution is unequalled--magisterial."--National Review

"Thoroughly impressive. A book that is consistently enlightening and one that, more than any of McDonald's previous works, stands as a monument to his remarkable talents."--William and Mary Quarterly

"As provocative as it is difficult to put down."--Georgia Historical Quarterly

"The best single volume on the origins of the Constitution."--Choice

"An important, comprehensive statement about the most fundamental period in American history. It deals authoritatively with topics no student of America can afford to ignore."--Harvey Mansfield, author of The Spirit of Liberalism
