Overview

More than half a century ago the Permanent Committee on the Oliver Wendell Holmes Devise decided that its principal purpose would be to commission a multi-volume work that would become a definitive history of the Supreme Court of the United States. Originally published by Macmillan, these volumes are being reprinted by Cambridge University Press with a new foreword by the General Editor, Stanley N. Katz. The project has developed into a thirteen-volume series, of which eleven volumes are currently available as part of this set. These volumes include: Vol. 1: Antecedents and Beginnings to 1801, by Julius Goebel, Jr. Vol. 2: Foundations of Power: John Marshall, 1801-35, by George Lee Haskins and Herbert A Johnston Vols. 3&4: The Marshall Court and Cultural Change, 1815-35, by G. Edward White Vol. 5: The Taney Period, by Carl B. Swisher. Vol. 6, Part 1A: Reconstruction and Reunion, 1864-1888 Vol. 6, Part 1B: Reconstruction and Reunion, 1864-1888 Vol. 7: Reconstruction and Reunion, 1864-1888 Supplement to Vol. 7: Five Justices and the Electoral Commission of 1877 Vol. 8: Troubled Beginnings of the Modern State, 1888-1910 by Owen M. Fiss Vol. 9: The Judiciary and Responsible Government, 1910-21, by Alexander M. Bickle and Benno C. Schmidt. Vol. 12: The Stone-Vinson Court and the Birth of the Modern Constitution, 1941-1953, by Willim M. Wiecek The Press plans to publish volumes 10, 11, and 13 within the next few years.
