    That’s too bad. I recently read Joseph Ellis’ recent book on 1776 and she was one of the small group entrusted to read over his draft. Her scholarship is appreciated.

    The role of true historians, legal and otherwise, is to avoid taking sides, avoid biases. This contrasts with “law office history” that is fostered by the legal adversarial system. Prof. Maier’s works, especially on the ratification of the Constitution, were informative and true, not judgmental, in the elusive search for original meaning.

    I just read Pauline Maier’s wonderful book on Ratification this year. I thought it was one of the best history books I have ever read. This is very sad. :(

    I just wanted to join in expressing my sadness in the loss of Professor Maier and my great admiration for her book on the ratification of the Constitution. It could easily have been sub-titled “The Making of the Constitution, Part Two” The three chapters covering the ratification in New York State were worth their weigth in gold.
