"The best account of Virginia's ratification now available. Glover succeeds in giving readers a tightly focused and comprehensive narrative of Virginia's ratification that centers on key personalities. An astute introduction to the history of the American founding."

"This well-written and thoroughly researched account of the Virginia ratifying convention not only tells a great story filled with key individuals and their debates over fundamental issues, it also explains why ratification in Virgina worked the way it did and why it mattered so much to the new nation."

"... This work provides a fresh and informative account, despite slighting portions of the story. Recommended. All academic levels/libraries."

"Readers unfamiliar with the basic outline of the arguments in Richmond will understand them clearly after reading Glover’s text."

"Glover’s page-turning account of the Virginia ratification... does provide a short, readable book that emphasizes the moment’s contingency... This is an excellent book, perfect for undergraduate seminars and surveys that hope to introduce students to this pivotal moment in American history."

"... Lorri Glover's much-needed work fills a hole in the literature and would serve as an excellent text for undergraduates interested in the conceptual and political bridges bindng the Confederation period to the early republic."
