Summary
"Scholars and citizens alike have endlessly debated the proper limits of presidential action and only gradually begun to understand the nature of the president's special powers and their impact on American life. In this new and much-expanded edition of his path-breaking study, Phillip Cooper again offers a comprehensive and cogent guide to these powers and shows how presidents from George Washington to Barack Obama have used and abused them in trying to realize their visions for the nation"--
