The Failure of the Founding Fathers: Jefferson, Marshall, and the Rise of Presidential Democracy

by

This book revisits the electoral college crisis of 1800, offering a new understanding of the early plebiscitarian presidency and a Supreme Court struggling to put the presidency's claims of a popular mandate into constitutional perspective. Ackerman shows how the early court integrated Federalist and Republican themes into the Constitution.
