Overview

Woodrow Wilson's classic 1885 study of U.S. government and its management through Congress, committees, and cabinet-members, including a comparison to parliamentary systems in France and, especially, England. Features 2011 Foreword by Steven Alan Childress, J.D., Ph.D., a law professor at Tulane, as well as the extensive introductory analysis that Walter Lippmann wrote for later editions. Quality ebook formatting, active Contents, fully-linked footnotes, and careful proofreading of the text against two original sources.

"The Constitution is not honored by blind worship," Wilson wrote. 'Congressional Government' was originally Wilson's dissertation written for the Ph.D. degree, and his first book. In it, he analyzed the difficulties arising from the separation of the legislative and executive powers in the U.S. Constitution, during an era in which — as seen clearly on hindsight — the country was experiencing an atypical series of weak executives. Ironic in light of his own later presidency. The book is considered to be an excellent work of political and constitutional scholarship. It is still widely read today and assigned to courses in politics and history.

All Legal Legends Series contributions from Quid Pro Books feature new introductions and care in rendering the author's text, unlike most such ebooks today. No other version of this classic work available in ebook format has this level of respect and functionality, nor its extensive introductory materials. Not just scanned and dumped into an ebook bucket, this work was compiled with pride and attention to detail and usable links.
