Marbury V. Madison
The Origins And Legacy Of Judicial Review, Second Edition, Revised And Expanded
Sobre o livro
Relates the story behind Marbury v Madison and explains why it is a foundational case for understanding the US Supreme Court. Nelson reveals how John Marshall deftly avoided a dangerous political confrontation between the executive and judicial branches by upholding the rule of law, and how he managed to shore up the Court's prestige and power rather than have it serve partisan political agendas.
