Even after two and a quarter centuries, Americans are seemingly still obsessed with our Founding Fathers' original intent and the direction it gives us for negotiating the tricky shoals of world affairs today. A fresh look at the most precarious period in the history of the republic reminds us anew of the wisdom of the Founders and the validity of their legacy.About the Author:
