The Spirit of the Constitution

John Marshall and the 200-Year Odyssey of McCulloch v. Maryland

David S. Schwartz

  • The first book to examine the influence and interpretations of McCulloch v. Maryland through US constitutional history
  • Challenges the conventional wisdom that the case has always had "one true meaning" that it established nationalist constitutional principles once and for all
  • Argues that the case's potential has not been realized in national economic reform and racial equality legislation
