Summary
"The American Revolution is often portrayed as a high-minded, orderly event whose capstone, the Constitution, provided the ideal framework for a democratic, prosperous nation. Alan Taylor, two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize, gives us a different creation story in this magisterial history of the nation's founding"--Book jacket

Summary
An authoritative, revisionist history of America's founding period by a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner challenges views about the Revolution's orderly conduct to illuminate the violence and corruption that prompted national leaders to ratify a frame of government that would consolidate power and restrain unruly state democracies
