Editors: Anthony J. Eksterowicz and Glenn P. Hastedt (James Madison University, Harrisonburg, VA, USA)
Book Description:
One of the key issues facing our republic in this century is the exercise of presidential war powers. The constitutional structure which gives the Congress responsibility for declaring war is being challenged and some would argue usurped by a succession of modern, aggressive commander-in-chief presidents. This new and unique book examines many aspects of this problem and places it in historical context, analyzing both pre-modern and post-modern presidencies. One thing is clear, a return to the original constitutional order will take an enormous effort on the part of our leaders and their people.
