What does it mean to be a treaty-worthy nation?  No question mattered more to Americans in 1776.  As
Eliga Gould shows in this prize-winning book, the need for
international recognition touched every part of the United States' early
history -- from the drafting of the Constitution, to relations between
settlers and Indians, to the looming debate over slavery.
