Here's the deal on Signing Their Rights Away

SIGNING THEIR RIGHTS AWAY,  the follow-up to my history title, features 39 biographies of all the men who signed the Constitution of the United States. It’s filled with anecdotes, quotes and a behind-the-scenes look at the squabbles and compromises that helped create the world’s oldest functioning Constitution.   PRAISE for RIGHTS   “Though Ms. Kiernan and Mr. D’Agnese clearly delight in noting the warts and blemishes of the Constitution’s signers, they maintain a refreshing reverence for the Constitution itself. Rather than ask readers to believe that an “assembly of demigods” (Jefferson’s words) wrote the Constitution, Ms. Kiernan and Mr. D’Agnese challenge the notion that the group that crafted this document of enduring genius was uniquely brilliant or visionary. If this raises the question of how exactly the miracle was accomplished, it should at least give readers some hope for our own seemingly uninspired political era.” —   THE WALL STREET JOURNAL    * “…snappy…descriptive…entertainingly written…”  —   SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL   , starred review    BUY SIGNING THEIR RIGHTS AWAY   eBooks:  Kindle   Nook   Sony   Kobo  Diesel Google  Hardcover:  Indiebound   Amazon   B&N   Powell’s   Autographed:  Malaprop’s
