Marbury versus Madison: Documents and Commentary
Mark A. Graber, University of Maryland Michael Perhac

The new reference series, Landmark Events in U.S. History, uses both contributed essays from eminent scholars and excerpts of primary source documents with explanatory headnotes to focus on critical events in American political history and explain how it came about and why it continues to play such a vital role in the history and political evolution of the United States. The first three books in the series are Marbury versus Madison, The Louisiana Purchase, and The Declaration of Independence.

Marbury versus Madison combines documents and analytical essays timed for the bicentennial year (2003) of one of the most important Supreme Court cases. This timely collection will explain:

  • the constitutional, political, philosophical background to judicial review
  • the historical record leading to this landmark case
  • the impact of the decision since 1803
  • its impact on the world stage, especially for new and emerging democratic nations.

Also includes a listing of all the Supreme Court cases citing Marbury an an annotated Marbury v. Madison.
