The Ratification Debate
This course examines the debate over ratification of the U.S. Constitution in 1787-1788. Once the Philadelphia convention adjourned September 17 and forwarded the finished Constitution to the states, an intense national debate, lasting more than a year, got underway. This class will focus on the debates engendered by the new Constitution, examine the arguments developed for and against the document by its advocates and critics, trace the patterns and the process of ratification, and consider the historical, theoretical and philosophical backgrounds to those debates. Finally, the course will examine the ratification contests as they took place both in the newspapers and in the individual state ratifying conventions.

Instructors: Jeremy D. Bailey (University of Houston) and Todd Estes (Oakland University)
