Stewart, like Bowen, wants us to see the four summer months as the only period when the Constitution was created. But Stewart is careful in his examination of the history of the Constitutional Convention. This book tells the story of the intrigue, the maneuvering and the compromises that took place in the summer of 1787 resulting in the Constitution: the flawed but enduring document that would define the nation-then and now. The book reads like a novel.
