Ratification: The People Debate the Constitution

Pauline Maier, William Rand Kenan, Jr. Professor of American History at MIT

MHS Trustee Pauline Maier of MIT discusses her book, Ratification: The People Debate the Constitution, 1787-1788, which tells the dramatic story of the two-year debate over the ratification of the Constitution, filled with chicanery and statesmanship, drawing on the speeches and letters of founding fathers on both sides of the debate--the first new account of this seminal moment in American history in decades.
