Summary
In The birth of the Republic, 1763-89, Edmund S.Morgham shows how the challenge of British taxation started Americans on a search for constitutional principles to protect their freedom, and eventually let to the Revolution. By demonstrating that the founding fathers' political philosophy was not grounded in theory, but rather grew out of their own immediate needs. Morgan paints a vivid portrait of how the founders' own experiences shaped their passionate convictions, and how these in turn were incorporated into the Constitution and other governmental documents. The birth of the Republic, 1763-89, is the classic account of the beginnings of the American government, and in this fourth edition the original text is supplemented with a new foreword by Joseph J. Ellis and a historiographic essay by Rosemary Zagarri.--back cover
