Editorial Reviews

Review

Ellis has compiled landmark court cases that deal with the Executive Power. His introduction to each case provide the context students need to understand their relevance, and his careful editing makes the cases accessible to students without legal training. A perfect supplementary text to bring the public law approach to undergraduate presidency courses. (Richard M. Pious, Adolph and Effie Ochs Professor, Barnard College, Columbia University)

Students find it daunting to read entire court opinions, with all the legal jargon, without any guideposts. Judging Executive Power provides the guideposts and presents readable, key portions of important court opinions. Students will be engaged by the material in this book. I recommend it enthusiastically for courses on the American presidency or the separation of powers. (Mark J. Rozell, George Mason University; coeditor of Catholics and Politics: The Dynamic Tension between Faith and Power)

From the Publisher

Carefully edited selections of sixteen important Supreme Court cases that make often complex and long cases accessible to undergraduate students with no legal training.

Introductions that place each case in its political and historical context, with special focus on the stories of the individuals and groups that brought these legal challenges to presidential power.

Brief postscripts to each case that describe what happened after the Supreme Court rendered its verdict.

A glossary of legal terms that help students navigate the legal terminology in the cases. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
