because it tells the tale of Constantia Dudley, from her family's monetary cave in to her encounters with a chain of cosmopolitan revolutionaries and reactionaries, Charles Brockden Brown's Ormond; or the key Witness (1799) develops a sustained meditation on late-Enlightenment debates bearing on political liberty, women's rights, conventions of sex-gender, and their relation to the reshaping of an Atlantic global within the throes of transformation.

This variation of Ormond comprises Brown's Alcuin (1798), a massive discussion on women's rights and marriage, in addition to his key essays on heritage and literature, besides choices from modern writings on women's schooling and revolution debates that determine within the novel's history and within the charged surroundings of the overdue 1790s.

"Philip Barnard and Stephen Shapiro have produced an grand version of Brown's Ormond by means of supplying copious explanatory notes and important documentation of the basic ancient context of feminist, radical, egalitarian, and abolitionist expression. Oh, ye patriots, learn it and learn!" —Peter Linebaugh, University of Toledo
