Notes of Debates in the Federal Convention of 1787
By James Madison
· Introduction by Adrienne Koch
James Madison’s record of the Constitutional Convention traces day by day the debates held from May to September, 1787, and presents the only complete picture we have of the strategy, interests, and ideas of the founding fathers at the Convention itself.
“The one invaluable source for the Federal Convention is, of course, James Madison’s Notes of Debates…. essential for all libraries.”
