Elkins and Mckitrick, Age of Federalism controversy?

I'm now working on the Quasi-War, which has taken me deep into the 1790s.  I'm looking at Elkins and McKitrick's impressive Age of Federalism.  I vaguely remember some controversty that it generated after it had been out for a while.  I do not remember the details, although it had something to do with their metholdology.  I can find nothing on this matter on the Internet.  Can anyone help?

Thanks--Don Hickey, Wayne State College (NE)
