New. $95. * "This volume is composed of five papers or addresses. Two of them are careful historical discussions of the origin of the American doctrine that courts can declare acts of the legislature void; a third shows the influence of theories of political philosophy upon the ante-bellum controversy regarding the nature of the Union; and the remaining two consider the significance of American political parties and their real function in popular government. The two papers first mentioned seem to be contributions of great and permanent value to the discussion of their topic. The style of all of these essays is easy and delightful and their argument sane, thoughtful, and persuasive." J.P.H. Harv. L. Rev. 26:280-281 cited in Marke, A Catalogue of the Law Collection at New York University (1953) 377.
