BeschreibungEchoing the words of James Madison, written shortly before the 1787 Constitutional Convention, that "the real friends to the Revolution" must move to frame a new system of centralized republican government that "will perpetuate the Union, and redeem the honor of the Republican name, " Brown shows how the Constitution captured both the capitalistic goals of its upper-class framers and the revolutionary generation's desire to build a republic that would lead the world to a better future.
PortraitRoger H. Brown is professor emeritus in the Department of History at the American University. He is the author of The Republic in Peril: 1812 and The Struggle for the Indian Stream Territory.
