Spirit of 1787: The Making of Our Constitution Reviews
Somewhat on the lightweight side, this book weighs in at a trim 170 pages that I was able to read most of on the treadmill at the gym. That's not intended to disparage this fine work, however. Some of us don't have the time, attention span, or wherewithal to take the scenic route through the framing of the constitution, and it's convenient to have Milton Lomask out there working for us. This book is divided into three sections, one for time period spanning from the end of the revolutionary war up to the drafting of the constitution, one for the drafting of the constitution itself, and a comparatively brief section dedicated to the contentious process of ratifying the constitution. The writing is for the most part objective, although Lomask seems to bear some kind of grudge against John Hancock (who for fear of making an unpopular move, Lomask alledges, feigned illness and even went so far as to have his doctors mummify him to avoid having to vote on whether or not to ratify the constitution. what a coward!)I'd recommend this for anyone looking for a general introduction to the major players and events surrounding the origins of the U.S., as well as a basic understanding of the arguments at the time for and against a strong central government. By the time you finish, you may even find yourself wondering if the right choice was made.
I've read this book a few times; am rereading it now. Just a good, accessible history of the four years in which the U.S. Constitution was formed. A good read that shows a lot of the personality of many of those involved in creating and ratifying this document. Every time I read this book, I'm startled all over again by the achievement--and how it hung by barely a thread on so many occasions.
fast read, informative, nice pacing. didn't break a sweat once.
