The Debate on the Constitution 1787-1788
This is a link to the first volume of Bernard Bailyn's massive The Debate on the Constitution, published by the Library of America. The two volumes weigh in at nearly 2400 pages and cover a tremendous number of recorded speeches, including those by "Antis" like Elbridge Gerry, Patrick Henry and Melancton Smith. Surprised Maier didn't mention the two volumes in her introduction.
