85 CHANDLER, DAVID LEON. The Jefferson Conspiracies: A President's Role In The Assassination Of Meriwether Lewis.
William Morrow and Company, New York: 1994. 0688122256 / 9780688122256 First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition. 
Three years after his famous exploration of the West, Meriwether Lewis was at the height of his reputation and career. He was governor of the Louisiana Territory, Thomas Jefferson's protg, and a viable presidential candidate. Then in 1809, at the age of thirty-five, Lewis was found dead in the yard of a backwoods Tennessee inn. Since that time, historians have fostered the belief that Meriwether Lewis was a suicide - an alcoholic, and a depressive personality. Now - nearly two hundred years later - Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Leon Chandler exposes the truth behind this death in The Jefferson Conspiracies. Key among the players in this forefathers' whodunit is Thomas Jefferson, the president who penned the Declaration of Independence. His multifaceted personality encompassed the brilliant mind of a philosopher as well as that of a tough, cagey power broker. As his career soared, so did his reputation - which had to be protected at all costs, even if that meant sacrificing others. Lewis's chief antagonist - although unbeknownst to him - is James Wilkinson, a strutting, womanizing Revolutionary War general who had the patronage of George Washington. The Jefferson Conspiracies proves that he was an informant working for the Spanish, with secret ambitions to be president. It also examines the question of whether Aaron Burr was a traitor and how his schemes might have unintentionally laid the groundwork for murder. And it gives vivid detail to a young nation reaching for independence and stability, destroying any who posed threats to its authority. Includes an Index.

100 CURRIE, DAVID P. The Constitution Of The United States: A Primer For The People.
University of Chicago Press, Chicago and London: 2000. Second Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
A masterly introduction to the United States Constitution, this slim book leads the reader through a concise overview of the document's individual articles and amendments. With clear and accessible language, Currie then examines each of the three branches of the federal government and explains the relation between the federal and state governments. He analyzes those constitutional provisions that are designed to protect citizens from governmental interference, such as the due process and equal protection clauses and the confusing first amendment provisions respecting the separation of church and state, and includes discussions of judicial review and freedom of speech and of the press. A sympathetic yet critical guide, Currie's book enables students and laypersons to understand one of the cornerstones of the Western political tradition. The second edition, along with an updated chronology and bibliography, incorporates the Supreme Court decisions over the past decade that have affected constitutional interpretation. "Superb . . . highly recommended for those seeking a reliable, understandable, and useful introduction to our constitution."ŅAppellate Practice Journal and Update Contents Preface 1.
