Publisher: University of Chicago Press (May 1, 2011). He tries to distinguish how a government used to be talked about in terms of the human body-"body politic," et. as opposed to later metaphorical comparison to architecture in a de-secularized milieu, but that still doesn't explain why all the sexual innuendo. What does it matter? All in all, a good book and fairly easy to read for the layman, but I could have done without the bathhouse humor. My stepson, by the way, drew the cover art.

The second half of Gould's book looks at satiric adaptations of the ancient ballad . Eric Slauter, author of The State as a Work of Art: The Cultural Origins of the Constitution. ISBN: 978-0199967896.

The second half of Gould's book looks at satiric adaptations of the ancient ballad tradition to see what happens when patriots and loyalists interpret and adapt the same text (or texts) for distinctive yet related purposes. Much more than a recovery effort, Gould's important book reveals the dynamic relation between literary forms and Revolutionary conflict and shows how Loyalist aesthetics continue to resonate in liberal political theory. -Sandra Gustafson, author of Imagining Deliberative Democracy in the Early American Republic.

The founding of the United States after the American Revolution was so deliberate, so inspired, and so monumental in scope that the key actors considered this new government to be a work of art framed from natural rights. Recognizing the artificial nature of the state, these early politicians believed the culture of a people should inform the development of their governing rules and bodies. Eric Slauter explores these central ideas in this extensive and novel account of the origins and meanings of the Constitution of the United States. Slauter uncovers the hidden cultural histories upon which the document rests, highlights the voices of ordinary people, and considers how the artifice of the state was challenged in its effort to sustain inalienable natural rights alongside slavery and to achieve political secularization at a moment of growing religious expression.
