This book explains the adoption of the US Constitution in terms of what the proponents were trying to accomplish.

Autorentext

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

Before entering teaching, he was a tax lawyer with Paul Weiss Rifkind Wharton & Garrison in New York and with the US Treasury Department.

Klappentext

This book is a history that explains the adoption of the US Constitution in terms of what the proponents of the Constitution were trying to accomplish. The Constitution was a revolutionary document replacing the confederation mode with a complete three-part national government supreme over the states. The most pressing need was to allow the federal government to tax, to pay off the Revolutionary War debts because in the next war, the United States would need to borrow again. The taxes needed to restore the public credit proved to be quite modest, however, and the Constitution went far beyond the immediate fiscal needs. 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.
