This book, first published in 1914, contains five historical essays. Three of them are on the concept of judicial review, which is defined as the power of a court to review and invalidate unlawful acts by the legislative and executive branches of government. One chapter addresses the historical controversy over statesa€™ rights. Another concerns the Pelatiah Webster Mytha€”the notion that the US Constitution was the work of a single person. In qMarbury v. Madison and the Doctrine of Judicial Review, q Edward S. Corwin analyzes the legal source of the power of the Supreme Court to review acts of Congress. qWe, the Peopleq examines the rights of states in relation to secession and nullification. qThe Pelatiah Webster Mythq demolishes Hannis Taylora€™s thesis that Webster was the qsecretq author of the constitution. qThe Dred Scott Decisionq considers Chief Justice Taneya€™s argument concerning Scotta€™s title to citizenship under the Constitution. qSome Possibilities in the Way of Treaty-Makingq discusses how the US Constitution relates to international treaties. Matthew J. Francka€™s new introduction to this centennial edition situates Corwina€™s career in the history of judicial review both as a concept and as a political reality.fledged interpretive essay, a€œWe the Peoplea€ is a heavy bombardment of the pretensions of Calhounism and secession, ... on thedue process clauseof the Fifth Amendment, which was no throwawayor afterthought butthe true heartofthe matter.
