Separating Power by Gerhard Casper

Book Description

The separation of powers along functional lines - legislative, executive, and judicial - has been a core concept of American constitutionalism since the Revolution. However, assertions of the importance of keeping the powers separate do not capture the complexity of the task when it is seen as separating power flowing from a single source - the people. Popular sovereignty did not underlie early versions of the separation of powers doctrine. This book aims to illustrate some of the challenges faced by US presidents, and others in Congress, over the history of the state.
