About this Item

ISBN-13: 9781584774020; ISBN-10: 1584774029. Chambrun, Adolphe de. The Executive Power in the United States: A Study of Constitutional Law. Translated From the Original French by Mrs. Madeleine Vinton Dahlgren. Originally published: Lancaster: Inquirer Printing and Publishing Company, 1874. xvii, 19-288, 15 pp. Reprinted 2004 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 9781584774020; ISBN-10: 1584774029. Hardcover. New. $95. * With a preface by James A. Garfield. Like Tocqueville, the Marquis de Chambrun [1831-1891] was fascinated by the United States and its government. He also shared Tocqueville's belief that the United States is a testing ground for the forces shaping the modern world. Chambrun's study of the federal government's executive branch offers a number of interesting observations. He doubts the value of the vice-presidency and argues that quadrennial elections promote liberty by creating momentary periods of political instability. He offers equally interesting observations on such topics as the Civil War, the impeachment of President Johnson and the relationship between the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches.
