really liked it

Come on - it's Schlesinger. Very quick read of Schlesinger's view of the changing role of the President's use of force. Focuss is placed on the modern president and a emergence of an Imperial power to the "preventive" theory of force. As always Schlesinger states his views, but does so in a way to allow the reader to develop their own views. Establishes a good history of a changing of the guard from Congressional declarations of war to resolutions to war power acts, etc.
