A Brilliant Solution: Inventing the American Constitution
--book by Carol Berkin [The Constitution is also referred to as "perhaps the most a brilliant invention in our history."]
"The British constitution [see] is, at its worst and at its best, a blind amorphous product of humanity struggling forward in the dark towards one practical end. And that one practical end is the 'good' of the people."
--Ford Maddox Ford, quoted in The Times Literary Supplement (March 25, 2016), p. 4
“As the British Constitution is the most subtle organism which has proceeded from the womb and long gestation of progressive history, so the American Constitution is, so far as I can see, the most wonderful work ever struck off at a given time by the brain and purpose of man.”
