Overview

Scholars of law and political science explain to students and citizens how an apparently routine US Supreme Court decision in 1803 has come to be perhaps the most famous, obscure, and authoritative ruling in US history. They translate into modern English Chief Justice John Marshall's legal language of the period, and explain how the concept of judicial review did not spring full-grown from his head, but had been discussed in the US for 20 years and had antecedents going back nearly 2,000 years. Much of the discussion, however explores the impact the ruling has had on law over the subsequent two centuries. Annotation c. Book News, Inc.,Portland, OR
