This title came to me with all the appearance of a book that hasn't been read in some time. The book jacket still has the old borrowing-card holder in the back, and the first pages are stamped with Multnomah County Library check-out dates going back to the 1960's and 70's. But despite it's age, this historical account of the birth of our Republic has all the robust details that will make you an expert on the authors and drafting of the United States Constitution.

Philadelphia in the summer of 1787 was hot, humid and the location of the Costitutional Convention. Bowen's eshustive research has produced a through book detailing the issues and personalities of the Convention. Issues of large versus small states and the failings of the Confederation are addressed. The guiding and forceful roles of the big three - Madison, Washington and Morris - are reported. This book belongs on the shelf of any reader interested in the early development of our republic.
