Genre: History

Reprint of the important fourth edition edited by Thomas M. Cooley. This was the most extensive and widely discussed study of the Constitution written during the antebellum period. Divided into three books, it offers a strongly nationalist interpretation of the Federal constitution. Book I contains a history of the colonies and a discussion of their charters. Book II discusses the Continental Congress and analyzes the f laws that crippled the Articles of Confederation. Book III begins with a history of the Constitution and its ratification. This is followed by a brilliant line-by-line exposition of each of its articles and amendments. Published in 1873, Cooley's edition updated Story's text to include discussion of the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments, as well as other changes introduced during the Civil War and Reconstruction.

Joseph Story's extensive narration of the United States Constitution is grounded in the social and political history of the text, and the meticulous researches of the author. This edition includes all of the author's notes. At over half a million words, the commentaries of Joseph Story upon the Constitution stands among most thorough ever written. Believing that the Constitution must be understood in multiple contexts, Story commences by presenting a history of the American Colonies - each is covered in turn, offering the reader cultural insight. The Revolutionary War was accompanied by the publication of the Articles of Confederation. These were a precursor to the Constitution of the USA, and Story examines the document accordingly. The establishment of a constitutional document is shown to be a defining and crucial trait of the incipient Republic, and Story demonstrates that from the outset the composition, formation and ratification processes were beset with differences of opinion and compromise.
