Book summary

The summer of 1787 comes alive as delegates to the Constitutional Convention hammer out the wording of the legal instrument that established the system of government of the United States more than two hundred years ago. This book first examines the need for and the significance of the U.S. Constitution, then follows the progress of various proposals and debates during the four grueling months it took to forge an acceptable document. Stories of the individual signers of the Constitution give insight into their backgrounds, motivations, and achievements. An appendix cites the complete text of the Constitution and describes the history of the document itself. An index facilitates retrieval of information in the text. The book measures 6 X 9 inches, has 280 pages and a laminated paper cover. One hundred sixteen black and white illustrations show portraits of each of the Signers as well as paintings and photographs of other aspects of this story. [via]
