Taming Democracy

"The People," the Founders, and the Troubled Ending of the American Revolution

Terry Bouton

  • Terry Bouton shows in this highly provocative first book, the Revolutionary elite often seemed as determined to squash democracy after the war as they were to support it before
  • Bouton's work reveals a unique perspective, showing intimately how the war and the events that followed affected poor farmers and working people.
