With the Stroke of a Pen:
Executive Orders and Presidential Power
Kenneth R. Mayer

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"This is one of the most important books on the presidency that has come out in the last ten years. . . . It stands as the best book to date on this important source of presidential power. I recommend this book to a wide audience."--David E. Lewis, Congress and the Presidency

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"Ken Mayer's book represents a penetrating and comprehensive examination of the president's power to issue executive orders. In what will be recognized as the authoritative work on the subject, Mayer brings a powerful and illuminating mind to an important, controversial, and, yet, understudied topic. This is an excellent work, and it will be highly regarded and widely read."--David Gray Adler, Idaho State University

"This book is exceptionally well researched and presented. It contains a wealth of data and has virtually no competitors. . . . A truly distinguished work."--Louis Fisher, author of American Constitutional Law
