Garry Wills: The Extra-Constitutional Executive

Historian; Author, The Modern Presidency and the National Security State

Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Wills argues that the atomic bomb paved the way for presidential authority that has “enfeebled” Congress and the courts, and that reached its apex with George W. Bush. Wills will frame the postwar period in a new light in his aim to sound an alarm about a continued threat to our Constitution and the balance of power.
