The very future of the nation was at stake ...In the summer of 1787, fifty-five of the leading figures in the recently independent United States of America traveled to Philadelphia as delegates to the Federal Convention to address problems arising from implementation of the Articles of Confederation as the governing document establishing federal authority and the rights of the newly formed states. The very future of the nation was at stake.

Known today as the Father of the Constitution, Madison clearly and precisely chronicles the often-heated discussions, and his is the primary record of the events that established the United States government, its division of power, and ultimately the character of American democracy. Through Madison's words we understand the essence of the personalities involved and the conflict and compromise that was inherent in the drafting of the document.The Debates in the Federal Convention of 1787 includes Madison's notes and remarks as well as other requisite information for interpreting the events of that historic year. The work is divided into three parts: Antecedents of the Federal Convention of 1787, which presents the complete text of the Declaration of Independence and the Articles of Confederation; The Federal Convention of 1787, a day-by-day description of the debates surrounding the formation of the Constitution; and The Constitution, Its Ratification, and Amendments, which presents the complete text of the Constitution, documents attesting to its ratification, and the Bill of Rights.With a preface by University of Richmond historian Robert Alley, this landmark work is absolutely indispensable for historians, scholars, and all those who treasure America's heritage.

Cloth. $110. * Founding father (and fourth President of the United States) James Madison [1751-1836] appreciated the significance of the Federal Convention and took great care to compile an accurate report of its proceedings. His journal, which covers the period from May 14 and September 17, 1787, is often referred to as "The Madison Papers" or "Madison's Notes." It remains the most complete record of the proceedings, which were held behind closed doors. This volume is based on the edition of 1840, which was published by the United States government from Madison's original manuscripts under the direction of President Andrew Jackson who authorized payment of the sum of "thirty thousand dollars" (Preface, 4) to Mrs. Madison, which later passed as an Act of Congress for the reduced sum of "five thousand dollars," (Preface, 5) still an exorbitant amount reflecting their comprehension of the historical significance of the notes to the nation. The volume also includes the text of another manuscript that traces the history of American constitutionalism from 1754 to 1787. This edition with E.H. Scott's complete "general and analytical" index.
