Read full description of the books:



"This is an important, comprehensive statement by a learned scholar about the most fundamental period in American history. It is pointed yet thorough, balanced yet unafraid to argue, mature yet vigorous. It deals authoritatively with topics no student of America can afford to ignore."
-- Harvey Mansfield

Forrest McDonald, widely considered one of the foremost historians of the Constitution and of the early national period, reconstructs the intellectual world of the Founding Fathers--including their understanding of law, history, political philosophy, and political economy, and their firsthand experience in public affairs--and then analyzes their behavior in the Constitutional Convention of 1787 in light of that world.

No one has attempted to do so on such a scale before. McDonald's principal conclusion is that, though the Framers brought a variety of ideological and philosophical positions to bear upon their task of building a "new order of the ages," they were guided primarily by theiy own experience, their wisdom, and their common sense.

"This is vintage McDonald. He is learned, but wears his learning lightly. He is assertive without being combative. …This is a realistic, tough-minded book about the role of ideas among practical men of affairs at a pivotal and difficult moment in human history."
-- Michael Kammen
