The Supreme Court and the Constitution by Charles A Beard( Book )

55 editions published between 1912 and 2012 in English and Spanish and held by 2,043 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A thorough analysis of the early history and development of judicial review, this is one of the most cited and highly regarded texts on law and government. Author Charles A. Beard ranks among the twentieth century's preeminent judicial and constitutional scholars. His enlightening and accessible survey examines the U.S. high court's role in interpreting and enforcing the laws of the country's framing documents. It addresses the controversies surrounding the exercise of judicial power, and it dismisses charges of the Supreme Court's usurpation of judicial review powers. Beard explores the intentions of the constitution's framers by delving into the records of the Constitutional Convention of 1787 and the text of the constitution itself. He places information from these sources into the context of colonial and republican American life, drawing upon memoirs and correspondence of the day for further insights. This edition of his work is supplemented by an appendix and bibliographies, along with an extensive Introduction, "Charles Beard and the American Debate Over Judicial Review, 1790-1961." Students and scholars of political science, history, and law will find this book an indispensable addition to their libraries

Economic origins of Jeffersonian democracy by Charles A Beard( Book )

71 editions published between 1915 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 1,754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sequel to the bestselling An Economic Interpretation of the Constitution, this volume focuses on the nation's early political history from the adoption of the Constitution through the end of the Jefferson administration. This period saw the rise and triumph of Jefferson's agrarian, slave-holding South over the mercantile-oriented urbanism of Hamilton's North, setting the stage for the ongoing clash between rural and urban America, a topic still highly relevant in the twenty-first century. Beard defines the early period of American governance in terms of the conflict between agrarianism and fluid capital that dominated the campaign for the ratification of the Constitution. He traces this dispute across three decades into its manifestations as Federalism versus Republicanism and later into Federalism and Jeffersonian Democracy. Broad in scope, Beard's view places the struggles within the context of social and cultural developments, and his interpretation provides an excellent resource for students of the historical background of American politics
