Reprint of the sole edition. Unlike his colleague JosephStory, Marshall was not interested in formal scholarship.Devoted entirely to the bench and bar, he had neither thetime nor inclination to write essays or treatises. In orderto locate the principles that guided his juristic thinking,then, it is necessary to look at other sources. This isOster's approach. He assembles a wide selection of letters,speeches, miscellaneous writings and excerpts from decisionsand arranges them thematically with narrative commentary.A useful guide to Marshall's ideas, it also has thecharacter of an intellectual biography.Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S.
