Eksterowicz, Anthony J.; Cline, Paul C.
PS: Political Science and Politics, v24 n2 p211-15 Jun 1991
Evaluates college, high school, and middle school, textbook treatments of the ratification of the Constitution. Discusses treatment of the Federalist and Antiferalist views. Reports an imbalance between the two views in texts sampled. Attributes the imbalance to Federalist victory, herd mentality, and fear that inclusion of controversy will inhibit sales of the text.
