9780030629563: Witnesses at the Creation: Hamilton, Madison, Jay, and the Constitution

From Jacket: The American Constitution has endured longer than any other written constitution of the modern era. The safeguard of our liberties, it established a government of laws, not of people. This popular work of history focuses on Hamilton, Jay, and Madison-and the creation and ratification of our Constitution. Two of these famous Federalists were delegates to the Constitutional Convention; the third was secretary for foreign affairs. How these three statesmen planned and wrote a series of newspaper letters called The Federalist, possibly the greatest classic in political science ever written, and their reasoned defense of the Constitution, which was adopted against formidable opposition, is the theme of this thrilling, authoritative book by the leading writer in the field. Richard Brandon Morris is Governor Morris Professor of History Emeritus at Columbia University, editor of The Papers of John Jay, and author of numerous books on American history.
