The Imperial Presidency

Course Description

Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr. wrote his book, The Imperial Presidency, following the demise of President John F. Kennedy, the Great Society under Lyndon B. Johnson, and during the unusual presidency of Richard M. Nixon, but the motives and impulses for the expansion of presidential powers go far back into our history. We will begin with a chronology of America's interventions abroad and conclude with the nature of the modern hegemonic/bureaucratic state. Suggested purchase: Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr, The Imperial Presidency, Mariner Books, 1973 (various editions).
