The Constitution and the American Presidencyby Martin L. Fausold
In this unusual and provocative volume, historians examine the presidencies of Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, F. D. R., and Truman, while political scientists assess the contemporary presidency and suggest a range of reforms, from modest to radical, including fundamental alterations to the balance of power between the presidency and the Congress.
“This book combines the analysis and insights of both historians and political scientists and applies them to a topic where that combination can be used to optimal advantage: the presidency in the context of the Constitution.” Louis W. Koenig
“It is a provocative book, encouraging citizens to rethink important parts of their past as well as what is right and wrong with the presidency today.” Paul E. Scheele
