For a limited time, the Cato Institute is offering a free downloadable e-book version of Cult of the Presidency: America’s Dangerous Devotion to Executive Power by Cato Institute Vice President Gene Healy.
From the Cato Institute’s website:
Americans have increasingly expanded presidential power over recent decades by expecting the president to provide solutions for all national problems, prosperity for all, and protection from harm. Healy demonstrates how the president’s role needs to return to its properly defined constitutional limits, with its powers held in check by Congress and the courts.
I’ve only been able to skim through some of it and it so far seems like an interesting read, so I definitely think it’s worth checking out; plus it’s free!Published in
