Without Precedent: Chief Justice John Marshall and His Times by Joel Richard Paul - SOLD OUT

The engrossing account an exceptional man who with cunning, imagination, and grace shaped America's future as he held together the Supreme Court, the Constitution, and the country itself. No member of America's Founding Generation had a greater impact on the Constitution and the Supreme Court than John Marshall. As Chief Justice of 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. This is the astonishing true story of how a rough-cut frontiersman - born in Virginia in 1755 and with little formal education - invented himself as one of the nation's preeminent lawyers and politicians who then reinvented the Constitution to forge a stronger nation.

Read the book then bring your thoughts and perspective to a lively discussion.
