Making Constitutional Law by Mark V. Tushnet pdf free download. My previous work, Making Civil Rights Law: Thurgood Marshall and the Supreme Court, 1936-1961 (Oxford University Press, 1994), examines Marshall’s legal career before his appointment to the federal bench in 1961. The first chapter of this book describes Marshall’s route to the Supreme Court from 1961 to 1967.

My approach concentrates almost exclusively on aspects of Marshall’s role in developing constitutional law.

Other aspects of Marshall’s Supreme Court work are important to specialists, but providing sufficient background to illuminate his particular contributions would burden nonspecialist readers. (For my treatment of some of Marshall’s work in administrative law, see “The Legitimation of the Administrative State: Some Aspects of the Work of Thurgood Marshall,” Studies in American Political Development 5 (1991): 94.) The primary sources for this volume are the Thurgood Marshall Papers, Manuscript Division, Library of Congress, and the William J.
