Mr. President: How and Why the Founders Created a Chief Executive

Mr. President: How and Why the Founders Created a Chief Executive by Ray RaphaelThe little-known story of the dramatic political maneuverings and personalities behind the creation of the office of the president, with ramifications that continue to this day.

On June 1, 1787, when the Federal Convention first talked of establishing a new executive branch, James Wilson moved that "the Executive consist of a single person." To us this might sound obvious, but not so at the time. Americans had just won their independence from an autocratic monarch, and they feared that a single leader might commandeer power or oppress citizens.

Constitutional Myths: What We Get Wrong and How to Get It Right

Constitutional Myths: What We Get Wrong and How to Get It Right by Ray RaphaelAmericans of late have taken to waving the Constitution in the air and proclaiming, "The founders were on MY side! See, it's all right here!" But these phantom constitutions bear little relation to the historical one.

By entering the world of the Constitution's framers, and experiencing it one day after the next as they did, Ray Raphael helps us understand how and why they created the document they did. Casting aside preconceptions and commonly held beliefs, he asks provocative questions that get to the heart of the document and its purposes: Was the aim of the Constitution really to limit government?...

A People's History of the American Revolution

A People's History of the American Revolution by Ray RaphaelThe best single-volume history of the Revolution I have read.
—Howard Zinn

The first major effort to tell the history of the American Revolution from the often overlooked standpoints of its everyday participants, A People's History of the American Revolution is a highly accessible narrative of the wartime experience that brings in the stories of previously marginalized voices: the common people, slave and free, who made up the majority in eighteenth-century America.

This first volume in The New Press People's History Series skillfully weaves diaries, personal letters, and other long-overlooked...
