Plain, Honest Men Chosen for Political Science Course at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln

plain honest menPlain, Honest Men: The Making of the American Constitution by distinguished historian Richard Beeman is a dramatic and engrossing account of the men who met in Philadelphia during the summer of 1787 to design a radically new form of government. Plain, Honest Men takes readers behind the scenes and beyond the debate to show how the world’s most enduring constitution was forged through conflict, compromise, and, eventually, fragile consensus.

Gordon S. Wood, Professor of History and author of The Radicalism of the American Revolution calls it “the fullest and most authoritative account of the Constitutional Convention ever written.”

Plain, Honest Men will be taught in a Political Science Course entitled “American Political Thought” at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
