The remarkable story of John Marshall who as chief justice statesman and diplomat shaped the foundation of the United StatesNo member of America's Founding Generation had a greater impact on the Constitution and the Supreme Court than John Marshall and no one did to preserve the delicate unity of the fledgling United States From the nation's founding in 1776 and for the next forty years Marshall was at the center of every political battle As Chief Justice of. With his previous bestselling history Unlikely Alies covering the alliance between France s Beaumarchais and the Continental cause s Silas Deane Professor Joel Richard Paul has ably set a high regard and standard for himself as a budding historian In covering the life of one of the most influential Supreme Court Justices of the Early Republic and Modern era Paul has managed to use his own judicial expertise in breaking down the finer points of Marshall s contributions This is no easy task and he undoubtedly accomplishes it as he composes a timeline of his subject s life from his birth in a cabin on the Virginia frontier at the dawn of revolutionary discontent to his final well fulfilled demise in 1835 with the shadows of disunion approachingThat s not to say that Without Precedent is devoid of flaws as the negative bias towards Marshall s second cousin and nemesis Thomas Jefferson takes a front seat throughout the pages While the end of the book is full of new insight on rarely discussed court cases and positions taken by the Chief Justice it almost feels like the highlights and true takeaways from the rest of the book involve Marshall s feuds slights and disagreements with Jefferson and the Anti Federalists over the issue of whom indeed should be steering the Early Republic Whether discussing the hypocrisy of slavery or even the announcement of Marshall as envoy to France on the heels of the XYZ Affair the antipathy towards Jefferson is always unmistakable When Jefferson learned that the third commissioner would be his meddlesome cousin Marshall he surely must have grimaced Jefferson could not have been happy that President Adams would send any staunch Federalist to France even though Adams had first asked Jefferson and Madison to go but Marshall was a particularly offensive choice to Jefferson Marshall after all had championed Jay s Treaty supported Washington s neutrality policy and opposed Genet And from Jefferson s perspective Marshall did not know his proper place in the worldNonetheless the biography is still full of relevant material and profound research that even the most adamant Jefferson apologist can appreciate and gain from Marshall s background is in all cases intriguing and monumental having grown up without gentility and education yet fighting alongside the likes of Washington and Aaron Burr at Valley Forge all the while becoming a self taught lawyer father and coping to understand a chronically depressed wife If the reader can manage to set aside the party politics portion of the book they will have come away with a thorough understanding of an outstanding figure one who s history and accomplishments still stand as a pillar to our present times Read the Full Review and More

Without Precedent

The United States the longest serving in history he established the independence of the judiciary and the supremacy of the federal Constitution and courts As the leading Federalist in Virginia he rivaled his cousin Thomas Jefferson in influence As a diplomat and secretary of state he defended American sovereignty against France and Britain counseled President John Adams and supervised the construction of the city of Washington DCThis is the astonishing true s. Without Precedent Chief Justice John Marshall and His Times was an engrossing and meticulously researched biography of Chief Justice John Marshall appointed to the United States Supreme Court by President John Adams The author imparts the historical significance of Chief Justice Marshall s thirty four years on the Supreme Court and his impact on this new and struggling nation Joel Richard Paul stressed how Marshall saw the Constitution as a dynamic and fluid body of laws enabling America to go from a small agrarian economy to a modern industrial economy Paul portrays Marshall s early life in vivid detail contrasting his humble upbringing in the rural Blue Ridge Mountains with fourteen brothers and sisters while his cousin Thomas Jefferson was raised with wealth and privilege at Tuckahoe However this gave Marshall an appreciation for the common man that served him well throughout his life The other experience that shaped Marshall was his service in the Continental Army while in the ranks of Washington and Prussian officer Steuben Subseuent to attending William and Mary College to study law he had a daunting reputation for his practice of law and his oratory Serving in the Virginia House he became a strong and powerful voice in the shaping of this country Much of the second half of the book focuses on many of the landmark decisions of the Supreme Court under the guidance of Chief Justice John Marshall priding himself on the inordinate number of unanimous decisions that were handed down and still are an integral part of the fabric of this country and our body of law This was a most uniue look at this pivotal and most interesting period in American history Destiny had preordained that Marshall would struggle with Jefferson for the soul of the Union He accepted President Adams nomination out of a sense of duty Marshall was committed to stand vigil over the principle of Federalism keep the country on the path of moderation and resist ideology with pragmatismAfter Jefferson finished speaking he stood with one hand on a Masonic Bible and the other hand raised to take the oath of office Standing opposite him to administer the oath of office was a familiar face John Marshall the chief justice of the United States and the man who administers the presidential oath of office History had predetermined their fateful collision Two cousins who had stood on opposite sides of every public issue for a generation now led two branches of the federal governmentIn less than two decades the Marshall Court had liberated the market from the constraints of monopolies and the heavy hand of state regulation It had guaranteed the sanctity of contracts and private property rights And it had empowered Congress to adopt national regulations that would harmonize state laws In so doing the Marshall Court helped create the conditions for free enterprise to flourish in the nineteenth centuryIt is tempting to contrast Marshall s life and legacy with Jefferson s Until Jefferson s passing they lived as mirror opposites for half a century in almost every way No Marshall biography can avoid taking sides in their conflicted relationship That is not to say that Marshall was always right or that Jefferson was always wrong Both were exceptional and entirely human They were flawed and sometimes they erred Yet both Marshall and Jefferson were indispensable to the founding of the Republic
