Overview

"The author has made a significant contribution to our understanding of constitutional law."—Robert Lowry Clinton, author of Marbury v. Madison and Judicial Review

"Focuses the professions's attention on the need to foster continuing, substantive constitutional debate, which is essential to a constitutional democracy. This book is free of the 'polemic' that characterizes much of the abortion and war-powers controversies. In fact, Burgess's approach to the substantive issues is very balanced. Her presentation of the war-powers controversy during the Vietnam era is both interesting and incisive."—Edward Keynes, author of Undeclared War: Twilight Zone of Constitutional Power and The Court vs. Congress: Prayer, Busing, and Abortion

Author Biography: Susan Burgess is assistant professor of political science at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
