Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I consider the quality of Longaker's contribution to be wholly appropriate for Rossiter's classic study...The combination of his text and notes provide the reader with a completely serviceable volume, of descriptive and analytical excellence, on the roles of the President and the Supreme Court in military affairs. The writing is fluent, logical, and clear, and the organization is sound."—Louis W. Koenig, Professor of Government, New York University
