Overview

Executive Privilege-called "the definitive contemporary work on the subject" by the Journal of Politics-is widely considered the best in-depth history and analysis of executive privilege and its relation to the proper scope and limits of presidential power. Picking up where the second edition left off, this revised and updated third edition provides a thorough analysis of the controversies stirred by George W. Bush's aggressive and relentless use of executive privilege over an eight-year period.

Editorial Reviews

Political Science Quarterly
Lucid, balanced, and tightly reasoned, Rozell's excellent book provides needed guidance on a topic that bedevils every administration.
ABA National Security Law Report
Ought to be mandatory reading for every member of Congress and national security lawyers in the Legislative and Executive branches.
Rhetoric & Public Affairs
For an American people who (apparently) must be their president's keeper, this book is essential reading.
