Inhaltsangabe

In 1783, America emerged from a long and bitter war for independence. The 13 colonies were now 13 sovereign states, bound together by the Articles of Confederation. After years of war, men like Thomas Jefferson saw the possibility of something new under the sun: a government which derived its just power from the consent of the governed. But the Continental Congress was bankrupt from the war, and many of the states refused to contribute money or to cooperate with each other.

In May 1787, delegates gathered in Philadelphia to attend a convention. After more than three months of passionate debate, conflict, and compromise, the United States Constitution was passed, establishing a national government. But to become the law of the land, the Constitution had to be independently ratified by at least nine of the 13 states.

Kritikerstimmen

"Walter Cronkite and popular history: what more could one want? The famous newscaster's voice is as compelling as ever as he describes the Constitutional Convention of 1787. The [audio] has 'you-are-there' quality and 'can't-put-it-down' impact. Actors play the major characters - Madison, the Morrises, Adams, Washington and many others - while Cronkite narrates the action. The issues of the day come alive in a wonderfully scripted presentation. The listener is left with vivid memories of the topics and men." (AudioFile)
