New Book: We the People!

Ourselves and Our PosterityUniversity of Georgia Department of History Distinguished Research Professor Peter C. Hoffer has recently written a new book For Ourselves and Our Posterity: the Preamble to the Federal Constitution in American History focusing on the work of the five men serving on the ad hoc “Committee of Style and Arrangement” at the Constitutional Convention in September 1787. The book is available on the Law Library Balcony KF4541 .H575 2013.

Of course, one can’t talk about the Preamble without watching the 1975 Schoolhouse Rock! segment “Preamble” written and performed by Lynn Ahrens.
