A classic and bestselling work by one of our top Constitutional scholars, Presidential War Power garnered the lead review in the New York Times Book Review and raised essential issues that have only become more timely, relevant, and controversial since its initial publication nearly a decade ago. In this new edition. Louis Fisher updates his arguments throughout, critiques the presidential actions of William Clinton and George W. Bush, and challenges their dangerous expansion of executive power. Spanning the life of the Republic from the Revolutionary Era to the nation's post-9/11 wars, the new edition now covers: New military initiatives including the Use of Force Act, the Iraq Resolution of 2002, George W. Bush's new "preemption doctrine," and his order authorizing military tribunals. President Clinton's overt and covert military actions in Bosnia and against Yugoslavia, Iraq, Afghanistan and Osama bin Laden. George H. W. Bush's reasons for not pushing on to Baghdad to overthrow Saddham Hussein after Desert Storm. Numerous Congressional initiatives, including a 1995 effort to amend the War Powers Resolution and a proposed 1998 amendment to use the power of the purse to limit presidential power.

From the Back Cover:

"This important book deserves the widest possible readership and should be compulsory reading for every Congressman and President. A tour de force."--Leonard W. Levy, editor-in-chief, Encyclopedia of the American Constitution

"A lucid and thoughtful work by the nation's top authority on the separation of powers doctrine. Fisher gives a balanced account of differences on this contentious topic but pulls no punches in presenting his own views. This book will be cited for years to come. It's a classic."--Michael J. Glennon, author of Constitutional Diplomacy and former legal counsel to the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee

"No one knows more about this complex issue than Louis Fisher. Those who care about the preservation of constitutional government in the United States will want to study this careful, sensible, and deeply disturbing book."--Donald L. Robinson, author of "To the Best of My Ability": The Presidency and the Constitution

"This volume is simply indispensable to anyone who cares about how this nation resorts to the use of force abroad. With great insight, Fisher explores the dangerous drift toward excessive presidential discretion over war-making."--Loch K. Johnson, author of America as a World Power: Foreign Policy in a Constitutional Framework

"This impressive volume displays the great sweep of Fisher's knowledge and historical understanding in the ever-churning war powers field. It's both a necessary addition to the constitutional bookshelf and a fascinating read in its own right."--Harold Hongju Koh, author of The National Security Constitution: Sharing Power after the Iran-Contra Affair
