Reprint of the only edition. "The author has sought to arrange under their appropriate topics and to discuss in their historical setting the more important of the 195 decisions of the United States Supreme Court on matters of international law handed down during the administration of Chief Justice John Marshall, 1801-1835. (...) Mr. Ziegler has performed his task con amore, and, on the whole, performed it well. He had at his disposal the voluminous repository of Beveridge's researches, Warren's work on the Court, and John Bassett Moore's appreciation of Marshall's contributions. But the author has, in addition, analyzed the decisions, the authorities cited or relied upon by Marshall, arguments of counsel and, to a considerable extent, Grotius and Vattel, and some of the influences, political or personal, that influenced Marshall.": Edwin Borchard, Harvard Law Review 54 (1940-1941) 168.
