From an examination of 40 files of newspapers scattered invarious public and private libraries, Ford selected a seriesof essays on the Constitution and reprinted them in thisvolume. Various sources allowed Ford to discover thepreviously anonymous writers of each of the essays, most ofwhom were prominent in administering the Constitution oropposing its development, and were largely responsible forthe resulting tendencies for the U.S. government. Ford'swork sheds new light upon the proceedings in the FederalConvention by furnishing clues as to why the Constitutionwas so strongly supported by some and so adamantly opposedby others. The author also explains the important roleplayed by personal and state interests.
