This book provides a new interpretation and examination of the public debate that took place over Chief Justice John Marshall's famous opinion in McCulloch v. Maryland (1819). Long recognized as one of the most significant decisions ever handed down by the Supreme Court of the United States, this case dealt with the ever-present and divisive problem of federal-state relations. Ellis sheds new light on how the case came before the Supreme Court, looks at many
of the key issues that Marshall either slighted or totally ignored, and surveys the reaction among the States to the decision. While social, political, and economic changes since the Civil War transformed this case into one of the most influential decisions of the Court, Ellis convincingly demonstrates that
the case had little impact in Marshall's day, and thus places this great case and the reaction to it in its proper historical context.

"Richard E. Ellis has once again earned great admiration from all students of American history. Lucid, forceful, and important, Aggressive Nationalism will fundamentally change the standard views of emerging American nationalism and the fascinating politics that lay behind it. It is a major contribution from a consistently impressive and pioneering historian."--Sean Wilentz, Princeton University<br> "Richard Ellis always finds new ways of understanding familiar topics - with the added, singular virtue of being so right. A judicious historian, Ellis determinedly renders historical events in real time and place. John Marshall's McCulloch v. Maryland opinion--long a chestnut of constitutional interpretation and analysis--endures as a bold statement for perennial problems of federalism and constitutional interpretation (despite Justice Scalia's misguided disdain). Ellis effectively challenges Marshall's questionable determination to protect the Bank of the United States; but Ellis also properly recognizes that Marshall's striking language remains the standard for a wise, pragmatic, and evolving interpretation of the Constitution. We can be grateful for this extraordinary book."--Stanley Kutler, author of Privilege and Creative Destruction: The Charles River Bridge Case<br> "Both scholarly and readable, this study puts the great case of McCulloch v. Maryland in a clear historical context. It will enlighten both students and specialists."--Michael Les Benedict, Ohio State University<br> "Richard Ellis's study usefully places McCulloch v. Maryland in its broad historical context. By doing so, Ellis demonstrates yet again how Chief Justice John Marshall cleverly situated his most sweepingconstitutional pronouncements in cases that raised only narrow issues and would not, when decided, present the Supreme Court with difficult problems of enforcement."--William E. Nelson, New York University School of Law<br> "Richard E. Ellis has once again earned great admiration from all students of American history. Lucid, forceful, and important, Aggressive Nationalism will fundamentally change the standard views of emerging American nationalism and the fascinating politics that lay behind it. It is a major contribution from a consistently impressive and pioneering historian."--Sean Wilentz, Princeton University<br> "The Ellis text offers insightful analysis of how individual states fared before, during, and after the national bank controversy."--Law and Politics Book Review<br>
