This book focuses on the origins, evolution, and demise of the Continental Congress, reinterpreting its successes and failures from the perspective of the "new institutionalism." In the process, the book lays open a fascinating historical laboratory for exploring contemporary questions about the nature of political institutions, the strategic incentives those institutions present to those involved, and the outcomes that result.
