Summary

''Popular sovereignty is one of the most powerful concepts in the American political vocabulary, and one of the most problematic....[Fritz] persuasively demonstrates that the rhetoric of popular sovereignty retained a striking vitality long after the Federalists exploited it to get the Constitution ratified....His explanation of the array of meanings ascribed to the nebulous idea of ''interposition'' is also superb.'' -Jack Rakove, American Historical Review
