Constitutional Journal: A Correspondent's Report from the Convention of 1787

Synopsis

You are there, in 1787, at America's constitutional convention, with an "inside story" that reads like a modern-day confidential account of the secret proceedings in Philadelphia. Veteran print and broadcast reporter St. Jojn reports each day's proceedings, flavoring his dispatches with quotes drawn from the correspondence and notes of the delegates. He captures the frustration, conflict, hope and despair of America's Founders during the long, sweltering summer session as the political future of the United States hangs in the balance. Appearing daily in major newspapers and broadcast around the world during the bicentenntial summer of 1987 by the United States Information Agency, is a popular narrative history ideal for students and general readers of American history.
