Review ?Another collection of essays on John Marshall is proof positive that each generation must reassess, on its own terms, the giants of the past. This collection, edited by T. Shevory aims at examining Marshall from a variety of political and methodological perspectives encouraged by the recent discovery' of the classical republican roots of the American founding, the attacks of the critical legal studies movement, and the impact of hermeneutics on legal studies. Marshall's work is put in the context of the interpretivist' versus non-interpretivist' controversy (Lennertz) and the behavioral approach to constitutional law (Stookey and Watson). A comparison with the collection of essays entitled John Marshall, ed. by Stanley Kutler (1972) shows the extent to which recent scholarship and policy concerns have affected the debate over Marshall and his contribution. For upper-division undergraduate students familiar with recent scholarly developments in law, political science, and history. There is an introductory overview, a select bibliography, a table of contents, and an index.?-Choice
