“Consistently provocative . . . The political method of the framers and its historical appropriateness are luminously explained. —Journal of American History

In this masterly account of the Philadelphia summer when our Constitution was born, Clinton Rossiter establishes his claim that the year 1787 is preeminent in American history. Bringing to life the setting and the challenge, he shows how the delegates hammered out the document on which our government and institutions rest today.
