Read in June, 2009

A concise history of the Consitutional convention; largely doesn't deal with the subsequent wrangling by the various states that produces the Bill of Rights......deals in detail with the struggle between the large and the small states as well as the slave-holding states with the northeastern (non-slave) states. Not a long read and not terribly concerned with explaining the long-terms ramifications of the various compromises and agreements made in Philadelphia that summer.

In many respects, the "short" story of that convention.....
