Antecedents and Beginnings to 1801 is the first of twelve volumes in the Oliver Wendell Holmes Devise History of the Supreme Court of the United States. In this first volume, Julius Goebel Jr. details the creation of a national judiciary in the United States under the Act of 1789 and traces the Supreme Court's development through its first decade of existence. The book is organized into three parts. The first part describes the background of American constitutionalism. Goebel then goes on to depict the Constitutional Convention, the ensuing debate over ratification, and the framing of the Bill of Rights. In the final part of the book, he explains how early legislation affected the judiciary and the initial experience of the circuit courts and of the Supreme Court. These three parts are divided into seventeen chapters, together with a statistical analysis of the business of the Supreme Court from 1789 to 1801 and substantial notes on manuscript sources

The Marshall Court and cultural change, 1815-35 by G. Edward White( Book )

3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Marshall Court and Cultural Change, 1815-1835 comprises the third and fourth volumes of the Oliver Wendell Holmes Devise History of the Supreme Court of the United States. G. Edward White completes the series' coverage of the Marshall Court, tracing the last two decades of John Marshall's term as Chief Justice. White describes the intellectual climate of the Marshall Court's work and analyzes the Court's decisions. Throughout, White stresses that the Marshall Court, despite its much-celebrated influence, must be seen as part of a unique cultural period when the heritage of the Revolution confronted the radical political, demographic, and intellectual changes of the nineteenth century. The Marshall Court itself was also unique and unlike the modern Court in that it used an informal set of deliberative procedures that gave the justices' personal predilections more influence in the court's rulings than at any other time in Supreme Court history"--

The birth of the modern Constitution : the United States Supreme Court, 1941-1953 by William M Wiecek( Book )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book recounts the history of the United States Supreme Court in the momentous yet usually overlooked years between the constitutional revolution that occurred in the 1930s and Warren Court judicial activism in the 1950s. The years 1941-53 saw the emergence of legal liberalism, in the divergent activist efforts of Hugo Black, William O. Douglas, Frank Murphy, and Wiley Rutledge. The Second World War and early Cold War years of the Court in reality marked the birth of the constitutional order that dominated American public law in the later twentieth century. That legal outlook emphasized judicial concern for civil rights and civil liberties, and reaction to the emergent national-security state."--book jacket
