What kind of nation : Thomas Jefferson, John Marshall, and the epic struggle to create a United States by James F Simon( Book )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 1,732 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What Kind of Nation is an account of the bitter and protracted struggle between two titans of the early republic over the power of the presidency and the independence of the judiciary. The clash between fellow Virginians (and second cousins) Thomas Jefferson and John Marshall remains the most decisive confrontation between a president and a chief justice in American history. Fought in private as well as in full public view, their struggle defined basic constitutional relationships in the early days of the republic and resonates still in debates over the role of the federal government vis-a-vis the states and the authority of the Supreme Court to interpret laws." "More than 150 years after Jefferson's and Marshall's deaths, their words and achievements still reverberate in constitutional debate and political battle. What Kind of Nation is a dramatic rendering of a bitter struggle between two shrewd politicians and powerful statesmen that helped create a United States."--Jacket

The center holds : the power struggle inside the Rehnquist Court by James F Simon( Book )

In fascinating detail, Simon shows that it was the internal dynamic among the justices - and their desire to stake out independent positions - that ultimately discouraged the wholesale revolution that Reagan, Bush, and Rehnquist hoped to achieve. This is a compelling, behind-the-scenes account of how the justices fought - sometimes diplomatically, sometimes with bare-knuckled determination - for the soul of the Court, and of how, in the end, the center held
