Description
Revered today for articulating America's founding principles, the first ten amendmentsóthe Bill of Rightsówas in fact a political stratagem executed by James Madison to preserve the Constitution, the federal government, and the latter's authority over the states. As told by the author of Civil War Wives and Wondrous Beauty, the story of the founders' fight over the Bill of Rights comes alive in a gripping drama of partisan politics. By pulling back the curtain on the intentions of the Founding Fathers in passing the Bill of Rights, Carol Berkin reveals the inherent weakness in these arguments and what it means for America today. The appendix includes the text of the Bill of Rights as well as capsule biographies of the members of the First Federal Congress.
