Those who have accepted the common belief that there were no problems, or, even minor problems (that could have been corrected) with the Articles of Confederation may want to review the discussion on that subject, in the book. The Table of Contents links will take you to on-line pages. However, the page numbers shown in the Table are included in the text, in [square brackets], often in mid-sentence, though they can be found that way.
