America's Counter-Revolution
The Constitution Revisited

From the back cover:

This book challenges the assumption that the Constitution was a landmark in the struggle for liberty. Instead, Sheldon Richman argues, it was the product of a counter-revolution, a setback for the radicalism represented by America’s break with the British empire. Drawing on careful, credible historical scholarship and contemporary political analysis, Richman suggests that this counter-revolution was the work of conservatives who sought a nation of “power, consequence, and grandeur.” America’s Counter-Revolution makes a persuasive case that the Constitution was a victory not for liberty but for the agendas and interests of a militaristic, aristocratic, privilege-seeking ruling class.

I find the use of the female pronoun when referring to Manning problematic. Reading and understanding the article was less of an effortless task as it would have been otherwise.
While respecting Manning's choice, I still think that there is a conceptual truth behind the gender designation that a sex change does not alter or negate. I would love to read your thoughts on the subject.
