Description
Judicial review has enjoyed such success in the United States that we sometimes think only the courts have guided the interpretation of the U.S. Constitution. In the most thorough examination to date, David P. Currie analyzes from a legal perspective the first six congresses constituting the Federalist period. He firmly establishes that the original understanding of the Constitution was forged not so much in the courts as in the legislative and executive branches of the government.

The first half of the volume is devoted to the critical work of the First Congress, which was virtually a continuation of the Constitutional Convention, setting up the executive cabinet departments, the judiciary, a taxation system, and a host of other institutions. Part two treats the Second through Sixth Congresses, where partisan battles arose over such controversial initiatives as the Alien and Sedition Acts.

Like its predecessors in Currie's ongoing study of the Constitution's evolution, this book will prove indispensable for scholars in constitutional law and legal history.
