本書首先通過1787年美國費城制憲會議前後的一系列故事,梳理美國憲政民主從源頭、發展到相對成熟和付諸實踐的基本過程。

作者循著制憲會議的進程,一步步講述並層層推出對美國憲法中有關制度設計的思想土壤、歷史機遇、基本理念的思考;描述出美國早期的思想家和政治家在面對各種不同的思想觀點時,遵從游戲規則,于交鋒和妥協中顯示的政治智慧;同時也對美國憲政制度中可憂慮的問題和歷史的局限等做了分析。其次,通過20世紀60年代美國反越戰運動中,《紐約時報》、《華盛頓郵報》等媒體在披露所謂“五角大樓秘密文件”的事件中,憑借憲法權力,與當時的美國政府行政當局抗衡的故事,凸現了美國式民主的運作機制,也涉及了制度在新的危機中的困境。
