Simon, James F. Simon & Schuster. New York. 2002. Hardcover. Very Good Condition. Dusk Jacket. Very Good Condition. 

..a riveting account of the bitter and protracted struggle between two titans of the early republic over the power of the  presidency and the independence of the judiciary....the most decisive confrontation between a president and a chief justice in American history. Fought in private as well as public view,  their struggle defined the basic constitutional relationships in the early days of the republic and resonates still in debates over the role of the federal government vis-a-vis the states and the authority of the Supreme Court to interpret laws....(from the dust jacket)
