Publisher's Summary

“A provocative extension of Jefferson’s original plan.”—Kirkus Reviews

Thomas Jefferson believed that every generation of Americans should rewrite our Constitution from scratch—to mirror the progress of the human mind and, most of all, to maintain the revolutionary spirit. He would be dismayed that it’s considered untouchable these days.

Taking up Jefferson’s cause, Christopher Phillips leads a motley group of Americans across the fruited plain in an offbeat Constitutional Convention. His Constitution Café project is sparking a much-needed conversation about our founding document and forging common ground at a time when our country needs it most.

Critic Reviews

"With infinite curiosity and an intellectual integrity . . . Phillips says about the bible of American tradition the unthinkable, the glorious, and the liberating: let it rip."—Thaddeus Russell, author of A Renegade History of the United States

"In an era of hyper-partisanship, it’s refreshing to read instances of Americans from all political persuasions holding rational, respectful, and thought-provoking conversations with one another."—Publishers Weekly
