black titles spine; "Andrew Cunningham McLaughlin, who belonged to the first generation of professional American historians, 'had an instinct for the jugular vein of history,' suggests Henry Steele Commager. This may explain why, after nearly six decades, this remains the foremost study of the forging of the American nation. 'The Confederation and the Constitution' has the traditional qualities of good history -clarity, symmetry vigor, logic, learning, judgment - but it has something more, It has the distinction of addressing itself to themes of abiding significance. Andrew McLaughlin views the Revolutionary era as a period marked by the emergence, and the solution, of pivotal issues of politics and morals. He focuses on the themes of nationmaking, federalism, the evolution of a new 'colonial' system, and the reconciliation of liberty and order. He shows how the Founding Fathers improvised, invented and, literally, brought forth a new nation."; previous owner's name onpre-title page; otherwise mint; including index - 222 pages.
