The Birth of the Bill of Rights: 1776-1791

I re-read this book from the 1950s (have a used paperback copy, originally ninety-five cents). The subtitle is somewhat of a misnomer since it goes back before that. And, I agree with this review -- it is useful as an early narrative history [and is readable for the average person] that provides the whole picture (not "1787-1791"] but it goes in tedious detail at times while in others doesn't do enough to explain the intellectual background and so on.
