The Constitution in Congress: The Federalist Period, 1789-1801

Sampul Depan
University of Chicago Press, 15 Mei 1997 - 344 halaman
In the most thorough examination to date, David P. Currie analyzes from a legal perspective the work of the first six congresses and of the executive branch during the Federalist era, with a view to its significance for constitutional interpretation. He concludes that the original understanding of the Constitution was forged not so much in the courts as in the legislative and executive branches, an argument of crucial importance for scholars in constitutional law, history, and government.
