      In most ways this was an excellent and much-needed book. It covers ground almost completely overlooked by what Peter Onuf calls, in his blurb on the back cover, "the conventional nationalist bias in Revolutionary historiography," being an examination of state-level deliberations in Virginia on the troubled matter of defining state-federal relations in the wake of a rather ambiguous constitutional text.

Excellent book.
