The Framers’ Coup: The Making of the U.S. Constitution
Harvard law professor Klarman will discuss his recent book, The Framers’ Coup, the first comprehensive account of the background, drafting, and ratification of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Klarman addresses how the Framers managed to write a nationalist and democracy-constraining constitution, and how they convinced ordinary Americans to approve such a constitution.
