This is a book for public libraries, for professionals (lawyers, particularly), rather than for the layman. It is specifically a study of American constitutional law in relation to the presidency. In part history (conception of office, qualifications, etc.); in part analysis (administrative powers, definition and limitations, etc.) He shows how broad are the wartime powers, but how Congress still holds the pursestrings. He discusses foreign relations and the presidency; he criticizes the present administration for relegating the judicial review to secondary place; he comes to the conclusion that the presidential power today is dangerously personalized, and suggests the answer to control in a new type of cabinet, more closely linked with Congress.
