Promotional Information

Joseph Bessette and Jeffrey Tulis have assembled a cast of leading scholars and fresh voices who show that the promise and perils of executive power rest in the president's ever changing relationship to the Congress, the Courts, and public opinion. The Constitutional Presidency is must reading for scholars and students who want to understand the executive's critical, uneasy place in the American political system. -- Sidney M. Milkis, University of Virginia A wonderful collection that will generate new interest in the ways in which American presidents work under our constitutional structure. The scholarship is sound and the approach is fundamental to our continuing understanding of the political landscape. -- Beau Breslin, author of From Worlds to Worlds: Exploring Constitutional Functionality Once again Bessette and Tulis combine their considerable talents to publish a thoughtful collection of essays that explore the reach of presidential power. They underscore that scholarly efforts to study political behavior must carefully consider constitutional sources and limits. -- Louis Fisher, author of The Constitution and 9/11: Recurring Threats to America's Freedoms
