We are pleased to offer Andrew C. McLaughlin's A CONSTITUTIONAL HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES in two volumes. This work, which won the Pulitzer Prize in history, was twelve years in the making and represented McLaughlin's climatic achievement as a historian and as a legal scholar.

McLaughlin, a scientific historian, is considered to be a "constitutionalist", and his understanding of modern history persuaded him that America's liberal democratic political system under the federal Constitution offered the best possible form of government. In a series of lectures delivered at New York University in 1932 and published as The Foundations of American Constitutionalism, McLaughlin stated his goal was "teaching constitutional principles historically," so that "the American citizen, not highly trained in the law, should know familiarly," and showing "the relationship between political philosophy and constitutional achievement."
