Michael Klarman, professor of law at Harvard University, will discuss the ways in which the U.S. Constitution was a more nationalizing and democracy-constraining document than most Americans anticipated; explain why the Philadelphia Convention did what it did; and how the Federalists managed to convince the country to ratify a constitution that constrained populist influence on the national government.
