Abstract

The examination of selected moments in John Marshall's life reveal the opinion he writes in Marbury v. Madison to not just be a great political coup but rather a pragmatic, calculated approach to formally implement the power of judicial review, establish the supremacy of the Constitution, and create a more defined system of checks and balances in the new American government.
