The Supreme Court and the Commander in Chief

The Supreme Court and the Commander in Chief

Clinton Lawrence Rossiter
With Richard P. Longaker

A concise treatment of presidential power by a brilliant writer is once again made available with the reissue of this book, first published in 1951. The book is brought superbly up to date by one of Rossiter's former students, Richard P. Longaker. New material covers vital events of the past twenty-five years, including the steel seizure and the dispatch of troops to Korea under Truman, civil disturbances and the Gulf of Tonkin episode under Johnson, the Pentagon Papers case, and the confrontation between Nixon and the Supreme Court.
