In this volume distinguished historians and political scientists examine political discourse during that short span of years from the Revolution through ratification, a period of profound political and conceptual change. The concepts of "sovereignty," "representation," "liberty," "virtue," "republic," "democracy"-even "constitution" itself-were virtually recoined. Others, like "federalism," were new inventions. Out of the vehement political arguments and debates of the period came not only a new Constitution but a new political vocabulary-a political idiom that was distinctly recognizably American.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A corrective to the all-too-facile tendency to find a conceptual uniformity in the Founders' thought."
