Haines' history of the Supreme Court surrounding the JohnMarshall years gives particular attention to the "local,particularist and democratic" principles that Hainesbelieved were neglected in favor of a conservative andnationalistic viewpoint found in earlier histories of theCourt. He shows that the Supreme Court under Marshallestablished the doctrine of judicial review as part of aFederalist effort to strengthen the central government, anddiscusses attacks upon the Court decisions, examines theissue of state versus national sovereignty and the status ofcommon law principles in the federal courts....Marke, A Catalogue of the Law Collection at New YorkUniversity (1953) 173.Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S.
