With his previous bestselling history Unlikely Alies covering the alliance between France s Beaumarchais and the Continental cause s Silas Deane Professor Joel Richard Paul has ably set a high regard and standard for himself as a budding historian In covering the life of one of the most influential Supreme Court Justices of the Early Republic and Modern era Paul has managed to use his own judicial expertise in breaking down the finer points of Marshall s contributions This is no easy task and he undoubtedly accomplishes it as he composes a timeline of his subject s life from his birth in a cabin on the Virginia frontier at the dawn of revolutionary discontent to his final well fulfilled demise in 1835 with the shadows of disunion approachingThat s not to say that Without Precedent is devoid of flaws as the negative bias towards Marshall s second cousin and nemesis Thomas Jefferson takes a front seat throughout the pages While the end of the book is full of new insight on rarely discussed court cases and positions taken by the Chief Justice it almost feels like the highlights and true takeaways from the rest of the book involve Marshall s feuds slights and disagreements with Jefferson and the Anti Federalists over the issue of whom indeed should be steering the Early Republic Whether discussing the hypocrisy of slavery or even the announcement of Marshall as envoy to France on the heels of the XYZ Affair the antipathy towards Jefferson is always unmistakable When Jefferson learned that the third commissioner would be his meddlesome cousin Marshall he surely must have grimaced Jefferson could not have been happy that President Adams would send any staunch Federalist to France even though Adams had first asked Jefferson and Madison to go but Marshall was a particularly offensive choice to Jefferson Marshall after all had championed Jay s Treaty supported Washington s neutrality policy and opposed Genet And from Jefferson s perspective Marshall did not know his proper place in the worldNonetheless the biography is still full of relevant material and profound research that even the most adamant Jefferson apologist can appreciate and gain from Marshall s background is in all cases intriguing and monumental having grown up without gentility and education yet fighting alongside the likes of Washington and Aaron Burr at Valley Forge all the while becoming a self taught lawyer father and coping to understand a chronically depressed wife If the reader can manage to set aside the party politics portion of the book they will have come away with a thorough understanding of an outstanding figure one who s history and accomplishments still stand as a pillar to our present times Read the Full Review and More
