Summary, etc.:
A history of the making of the Constitution focuses on Madison and Hamilton's dynamic leadership contributions to the effort to construct a national government. America's great underdog story from New York Times bestselling author Charles Cerami. Seven years after the revolution, America was in crisis. The government didn't work, but the citizens didn't care-or were in a state of rebellion. Then two unknown men, Hamilton and Madison (unknown especially compared to the revered Founding Fathers), envisioned a plan that no one else thought could happen: a truly United States. Against all odds, these men maneuvered and strategized to get the right men to agree on the right ideas. The result: the most brilliant political document ever and a powerful United States.
