New book on Marbury v. Madison
The Jefferson Library recently purchased The Great Decision: Jefferson, Adams, Marshall, and the Battle for the Supreme Court by Cliff Sloan and David McKean. It presents complex legality in a easy style for all readers. The book also sheds light on how the Supreme Court really was not seen as an equal to Congress and the Presidency until this case. We take judicial review for granted now, but this book gives us a glimpse in time before it.
