One of the most important news stories of the last two centuries comes to life in this "eyewitness account" of America's first Federal elections and of the First Congress and President Washington creating the Bill of Rights. In this swift-moving and colorful chronicle, written by St. John as though he were an on-the-scene reporter, you will discover how Congressman James Madison became in the formative months of the new Republic the power behind Washington in the executive branch--while wheeling and dealing in Congress, and still championing a separation of powers; how Madison had to fight both friend and foe of the Constitution to pass a Federal Bill of Rights in the First Congress; why Washington and Madison saw the future of America in the frontier West and not in Europe; and how Spanish and British intrigues, with the aid of hostile Indian tribes on the American frontier, posed a threat to the survival of the new national government. Retired Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court Warren E. Burger said, "this book, like the first two of St. John's trilogy, tells an exciting story of our nation's founding, which should engage readers of all ages and backgrounds." This book and its predecessors are a captivating history lesson--told like a banner headline news story--for Americans wanting to know the roots of the political freedoms they enjoy today

Communication as-- : perspectives on theory ( Book )
7 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 348 libraries worldwide
"What does it mean to argue that communication is organizing? Or ritual? Or failure? What is at stake in choosing one metaphor or stance over another? What is gained and what is lost - for the field, for the theories themselves, and especially for humans communicating in everyday contexts? In Communication as ... : Perspectives on Theory, editors Gregory J. Shepherd, Jeffrey St. John, and Ted Striphas bring together a collection of 27 essays that explores the wide range of theorizing about communication, cutting across all lines of traditional division in the field. The essays in this text are written by leading scholars in the field of communication theory, with each scholar employing a particular stance or perspective on what communication theory is and how it functions. In essays that are brief, argumentative, and forceful, the scholars propose their perspective as a primary or essential way of viewing communication with decided benefits over other views. Key Features: Compares and contrasts different metaphorical views on the theory and practice of communication, challenging students to develop their own argument about communication theory Promotes an alternative way of examining communication problems - through the engaged interplay of a diversity of positions - encouraging readers to think through contemporary problems and questions in the field Compels readers to confront competing theoretical positions and their consequences head-on rather than outlining theories in ways that might separate them from their real-world consequences Communication as ... is an excellent textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses on communication theory in the fields of Communication, Journalism, Sociology, and Psychology." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/enhancements/fy0658/2005000648-d.html

It is an enthralling story, never before told in this journalistic form.

With his simulated day-by-day reportage, prize-winning journalist-historian Jeffrey St. John makes you an eyewitness to the 1787-1788 political battle to ratify the U.S. Constitution. And what a battle it was! Listeners will discover how the Federalists sought to stampede the states into early ratification with violence and rigged elections; how close some Anti-Federalists came to opposing the new Constitution with armed force; how the Bill of Rights was born as the price Federalists had to pay to save the new Constitution from certain defeat. Described here is Massachusetts Governor John Hancock's secret deal to deliver his state in return for support of his candidacy for the presidency, the Constitution's sanction of slavery and the delegate revolts it produced, Patrick Henry's challenge to a pistol duel at the Virginia convention, and how the soft-voiced James Madison defeated America's greatest orator
