Jonathan M. Chu examines the economic and constitutional adjustments Americans made after Independence to consider their impact on the debates over the Constitutional Convention. Chu explores individual economic and legal behaviors, connecting them to: adjustments in trade relations with Europe and Asia; the rise in debt litigation in Western Massachusetts; deflation and monetary illiquidity, and the Bank of North America; and reconceiving the functions of the national government and the need for constitutional reform. Stumbling Towards the Constitution will be of interest to historians of the Revolution and Early America specifically, and economic, legal and constitutional historians and historians of the Atlantic world more generally.
