    This is the first book I listened to about Chief Justice John Marshall Honestly, the second one I read, Without Precedent Chief Justice John Marshall and His Times by Joel Richard Paul, was far superior The conflicting visions of Jefferson and Marshall vis a vis the shape of the United States is fascinating and key to understanding our history and our nation Simon does a good job laying out a bit of biography of each, and then focusing on the rulings that highlighted their differences.What I This is the first book I listened to about Chief Justice John Marshall Honestly, the second one I read, Without Precedent Chief Justice John Marshall and ...
