For the 200th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in McCulloch v. Maryland, AEI’s Program on American Citizenship commissioned six distinguished scholars to author essays related to that decision. Gary Schmitt, the editor of the volume, provides an introduction with his essay, “John Marshall and the Politics of McCulloch v. Maryland.” Nelson Lund of George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School offers his criticisms in “The Destructive Legacy of McCulloch v. Maryland.” And finally, Unprecedential’s own Adam White defends Chief Justice Marshall’s decision with “McCulloch v. Maryland and John Marshall’s Judicial Statesmanship.”

All three authors join this special episode of Unprecedential to discuss their views on the landmark case that touched on so many fundamental questions of constitutional governance.
