"This volume is a powerful antidote to the disinformation propagated by the mass media, so-called political pundits, and ideological combatants. The unitary executive was not hatched in the inner sanctums of the George W. Bush White House, as conspiracy buffs would have us believe, but has its origins in the constitutional fabric of the founding. Critics who bemoan the rise of the unitary executive are simply striking out at political windmills, because the modern presidency is the cause and consequence of this growth in presidential power. Barilleaux, Kelley, and their collaborators have set the historical record straight, and the essays in this volume ought to be required reading for political scientists, journalists, historians, interested citizens, and especially law professors. The unitary executive is here to stay."--Raymond Tatalovich, Professor of Political Science, Loyola University Chicago
