Book Description:

When the Founding Fathers lodged the power to declare war in Congress, they did so with good reason. In arguing against giving that power to the president, James Madison, the Father of the Constitution, contended that, "The means of defense against foreign danger have been always the instruments of tyranny at home." It is a warning that seems to have been largely forgotten.

About the Author:

Robert Kennedy is a professor at Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA.
