    Winning independence from Great Britain was only step one and probably less significant than the creation of our system of government The war had brought the colonies to a common cause but afterwards the debt was huge I was shocked to learn it was 40MM with no means to collect taxes they were voluntary by the articles of confeder

    The Constitution was intended less to resolve arguments than to make argument itself the solution For judicial devotees of originalism or original intent this should be a disarming insight since it made the Constitution the foundation for an ever shifting political dialogue that like history itself was an argument without end Madison's original intention was to make all original intentions infinitely negotiable in the f

    In this interesting and readable book Joseph Ellis has made a valuable contribution to the explication of a period in United States history that is often overlooked and relatively poorly understood The period in uestion is the 1780’s that time between the acceptance of the Articles of Confederation and the final approval of the US Constitution a time when the lack of effectiveness of the former was increasingly apparent and d

Linuish their independence and accept the creation of a federal government with power over their individual autonomy  The uartet is the story of this second American founding and of the men responsible some familiar such as George Washington Alexander Hamilton John Jay and James Madison and some less so such as Robert Morris and Gouverneur Morris It was these men who shaped the contours. A fascinating work on the origins of the American Constitution Ellis who has authored other excellent historical analyses contends that four people are critical to understanding why we have a the Constitution that we now have George Washington Alexander Hamilton James Madison and John Jay Two others contributed greatly as well Gouverneur Morris and James WilsonThis book explores how the uartet upset with the poor performance of the United States under the Articles of Confederation labored to create a new government with a energetic national structure that would address the ills under the Articles For instance under the Articles the national government could reuest but not demand or enforce fiscal support from the different states Many states simply ignored this meaning that the national government never had the funding neededMany seem to think that George Washington was somewhat of a figurehead for others such as Hamilton and Madison This and many other books surely should end that canard Washington has been depicted by many historians as an active player in the move toward a new national government systemThe book does a nice job on a number of fronts One it highlights to active role of the uartet Two it gives a sense of the politics of the Constitution that is well done well done by others too Three it shows that the Founders were not demigods but active and calculating politiciansOn the other hand some cavils At one point the author dismisses the fear of one of the uartet that under the rules a vice presidential candidate might get electoral votes than a presidential candidate in this case Washington versus John Adams The election of 1800 shows that this was a well founded fear as VP candidate Aaron Burr was in a tie with the presidential candidate Thomas Jefferson Second limiting the key figures to just the uartet and their allies understates the relevance of others in the process such as Roger Sherman and Robert Morris Three Ellis does a nice job of demolishing critics such as Charles Beard But Beard s view was in a shambles by the 1960s Others such as Jackson Turner Main had critiues of the economic background that probably warranted consideration in this volume Forrest McDonald from a different perspective probably should be acknowledged as wellAt any rate this is a fine volume and warrants attention by readers They will learn a great deal about the origins of the United States under the Constitution here

Of American history by diagnosing the systemic dysfunctions created by the Articles of Confederation manipulating the political process to force a calling of the Constitutional Convention conspiring to set the agenda in Philadelphia orchestrating the debate in the state ratifying conventions and finally drafting the Bill of Rights to assure state compliance with the constitutional settleme. Yes This is my 10th Revolutionary period book I ve read since the new year yeah I get on a kick sometimes and I ve been enjoying it all The part I have found most fascinating through it all is the actual creation of the government The sitting down bashing it and each other out and trying to create this never before seen government yes there have been republics but not like this and all previous eventually failed and all the compromise and wrangling that had to go into it well beyond what we can even comprehend And that this creation was so orchestrated by the few yet knowing that the masses likely just wanted to be let alone to get on with life leave them out of politics but all the while this momentous thing was happening ANYWAY This book is ALL about thatEllis has given an excellent account of this nation creation with a really excellent analysis of the thoughtsfeelingsmotivations surrounding it from so many sides He also covers the concept of what would the founding fathers think of xyz today and how that thought process doesn t really work like trying to plant cut flowers That realistically the one thing they d be amazed at is that the constitution they wrote was still in use He covers the serious moral compromises that had to be made and also that they didn t want the future to be stuck on notions of original intentI don t think I d recommend this as someone s first read into the era but for those who have a little bit than the avg Joe s knowledge about the period it s a great read and great for lovers of history
