Autorentext

Calvin H. Johnson is the Andrews & Kurth Centennial Professor of Law at the University of Texas School of Law.

Zusammenfassung
The Constitution was a revolutionary document creating a complete three-part national government over the states. This book argues that the proponents' anger at the states for their recurring breaches of duty to the united cause explains both critical steps and the driving impetus for the revolution. Other issues were less important.
