In preparing the long-awaited second edition of his well-liked text, Kent Newmyer consulted the best and most relevant of the recent scholarship on the antebellum Court, prompting him to revise important points in the story of the Court’s evolution.

Nevertheless, the revised edition of the text retains the basic format and the conceptual premise of the original: the unique contributions of the Marshall and Taney courts taken together laid the foundation for the modern institution. Understanding the Supreme Court during its formative period provides useful insights into its continued (and hotly debated) involvement in shaping American society. Seminal cases that came before the Court, such as Marbury v. Madison and Dred Scott v. Sanford are examined in detail.

Besides touting a thoroughly revised bibliographical essay, the second edition of The Supreme Court under Marshall and Taney includes an entirely new bank of illustrations and an index of important cases, making it perfect as supplementary reading for the U.S. history survey as well as courses in U.S. legal history and the history of the Early Republic.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

"The Supreme Court under Chief Justices, Marshall and Taney, from 1801 to 1864, spanned the formative years of the republic. During this period the American people cast off the institutional and psychological vestiges of colonial status and established the political and economic foundations, the intellectual assumptions, and the social priorities that would carry the nation into the modern age. In this enterprise of nation building the Court played a leading role. Not only did it shape the contours of national policy, but, in the process, defined its own powers and established the ground rules for judicial government."
