Beeman on The Daily Show

Last week Richard R. Beeman, author of The Varieties of Political Experience in Eighteenth-Century America and The Evolution of the Southern Backcountry: A Case Study of Lunenburg County, Virginia, 1746-1832, went head to head with Jon Stewart on The Daily Show.

Beeman schooled Stewart on the development of the U. S. constitution, the subject of his new book Plain, Honest Men: The Making of the American Constitution, published by Random House.
