The book also links the formation of the Constitution to the events of the American Revolution from the Stamp Act Crisis to the Bill of Rights. Solberg provides background on the ratification of the Constitution, biographical sketches of each participant in the Philadelphia Convention, and population figures on which representation was to be based. - Back cover.
