"It would be difficult to find a more important subject to study than James Wilson. He was one of only a few men who signed both the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. He was the only one who served in both the Constitutional Convention and the Pennsylvania Ratification Convention. One of the most prominent lawyers of his time, Wilson was one of the most prolific speakers at the Constitutional Convention, rising to address the convention some 168 times. Wilson supported proportional representation, greater popular control of governance, and a strong national government." -from the Introduction
