Description - Absolute Power by John P. Mackenzie

In Absolute Power, John P. MacKenzie looks at the origins and history of the unitary executive theory in the United States, examining its broad claims of presidential power in the light of the founders' original writings as well as the actions of Presidents Jackson, Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt, and Truman, all of whom tested the power of their office against that of Congress and the Supreme Court.
