Supreme Court and Congress by Louis Fisher
Book DescriptionThis is an insightful exploration of the constantly evolving relationship between the Court and Congress. "The Supreme Court and Congress" explores how the Court operates in relation to legislative action, as well as how it has defined the extent and limits of congressional power. Individual chapters trace conflicts between branches over the power of judicial review and other key separation of powers issues, civil rights for African Americans and women, individual liberties, and regulation of the national economy. Essays and documents also examine the different interpretations of the Constitution by the judicial and legislative branches, and how the resulting dialogue helps reconcile constitutional interpretation with democratic government.

Law of the Executive Branch, Paperback (January 2016)
The Law of the Executive Branch: Presidential Power places the law of the executive branch firmly in the context of constitutional language, framers' intent, and more than two centuries of practice. Each provision of the US Constitution is analyzed to reveal its contemporary meaning and in concert with the application of presidential power.

This fascinating debunking of judicial supremacy argues that nonjudicial contributions to constitutional interpretation make the Constitution more stable, more consistent with constitutional principles, and more protective of individual and minority rights.
