About this title


Ubertaccio documents the creation, growth, and significance of the Office of the Solicitor General. Ubertaccio argues that the Solicitor General’s office has become the President’s preeminent tool for legal and constitutional change. Throughout the history of the office, from its early defense of federal power in the area of civil rights by Benjamin Bristow to its advocacy of strong executive power to wage a war against terrorism by Theodore Olson, Solicitors have been advocates of federal and executive power and wrapped the activities of the federal government and the executive office in constitutional dressing.

About the Author:

Peter Ubertaccio earned his Ph.D. from Brandeis University in 2002. He is currently an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Stonehill College in Easton, MA. His research interests include American political development, executive power, and politics and law. He is working on a book on the presidency of George W. Bush.
