The Development of the Treaty-Making Functions of the United States Senate During Their Formative Period
Ralston Hayden, Ph.D.


In Senate and Treaties, 1789–1817, Ralston Hayden traces the early history of treaty-making within the United States Senate over the course of twenty-five years, beginning with the Senate’s first treaty negotiation. Hayden calls this era the “formative period in the history of the treaty-making functions of the Senate,” during which time the expectations of the Senate’s functions underwent great changes.
