From Library Journal:

Morris surveys the much neglected Confederation period, viewing it as a critical time defined by political experimentation, free enterprise values, and inequality. He deals with such standard political issues as the Northwest Ordinance and the establishment of the Confederation government and the state constitutions. He also tackles demographic, ethnic, and social topics as well as the economic tangle of postwar indebtedness and the aftermath of wartime finances, which led to postwar depression and Shay's Rebellion in New England. The study ends with the Federal Constitution and its ratification. Though unearthing little new information, Morris offers a worthwhile synthesis to both generalists and scholars and updates Merrill Jensen's The New Nation (1950).

From Publishers Weekly:

Columbia University historian Morris's exhaustively researched history is a sequel to his Bancroft Prizewinning The Peacemakers. Here he chronicles the dissensions and debates of the troubled period when, having won independence from George III's England, unpaid revolutionary soldiers straggled home to economic depression and chaos in their respective colonies. Morris provides a superbly revealing description of the fiscal and political problems that led Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Hancock, a recalcitrant Patrick Henry and other leaders to convene in Philadelphia to establish a constitution and a lasting Union.
