Decision in Philadelphia: The Constitutional Convention of 1787

Decision in Philadelphia is just such a book. It is the best popular history of the Constitutional Convention available. This clear and well-written volume traces the major issues involved, dismissing sectional, economic, or class interests as dominant factors and concentrating instead on the "deeply rooted attitudes" and "emotions" of individual members. Modern readers will find the authors' comments on the Constitution particularly interesting, casting many of the Founding Fathers in a new light.
