Little, Brown, Boston (1966) Good in good dust jacket. dj has edge wear xix, 346 p. illus., ports. 22 cm. Includes: Illustrations, Portraits. "An Atlantic Monthly Press book. " When Bowen described what happened at Philadelphia that year as a miracle, she wasn't being original--she was merely quoting George Washington who, as head interlocutor of the whole mess, was in a pretty good position to make that judgment. That people from 13 very different colonies, each with different and competing interests, each jealous of its sovereignty, and each stubborn as heck and suspicious of each other should ever find a way to work past their differences and produce our Constitution was indeed a miracle. More than once during the deliberations, Washington despaired. All the delegates were never present at once. Rhode Island never sent any. Others came and went, because they had business back home to tend to, personal and otherwise. And they were all kids, except for Benjamin Franklin, at 81 the oldest. But even with him there, the avg age was 41. Yet they had the maturity to be willing to meet in the sweltering, near-record heat of that summer, closing the windows so nobody could overhear their discussions, managing never to leak a word (though somebody had to tail the talkative Franklin to head him off when he started to say something he shouldn't), and adopting house rules that included "to make sure everyone has the freedom to change his mind, or just to throw out thoughts for discussion purposes without being attacked for them now or later, we're not putting anything down in writing till we reach a final decision." Reading this book made me aware how special our Constitution is.
