Not A Book For A Student Of The Constitutional Convention
Reviewed in the United States on March 14, 2018
I have read Max Farrand’s classic The Records of the Federal Constitutional Convention twice, the Colllected Works of James Wilson, one of the most important framers, as well as numerous books about the Madison, Gouverneur Morris and the Convention. I was quite disappointed with this book. It is not very well reasoned or supported. It is more polemical than analytical. The lack of footnotes prevent me or any student of the Constitution from taking it seriously.
