Ellis' premise in writing the book "Founding Brothers" was to expose threats to the union and explore the reason the union was able to survive its early years. He explores six separate threats, and in turn, provides the explanation of our country's survival as primarily a direct result of the relationships between the men who founded our country, rather than a result of debate or the creation and implementation of the Constitution.
