What more can there be to learn about John Marshall?
We have been blessed recently with a flood of fine books about Marshall and the Supreme Court over which he presided from 1801 until 1835.1 We also now have readily available an impressive collection of documents concerning the Court before Marshall, as well as a fine series collecting, introducing, and annotating Marshall's papers. With recent bicentennial celebrations marking the beginning of Marshall's career as Chief Justice and the anniversary of Marbury v. Madison,3 an outpouring of law review articles and scholarly symposia have offered learned exchanges about the great Chief Justice and his most famous decision.'
