Through dramatic narrative and discussion, a distinguished United States Senator describes the development of presidential wars and war-making powers. In vivid and compelling detail, Jacob Javits traces those acts of presidents, from George Washington and Thomas Jefferson to Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon, that have undermined the war powers of congress. That process has resulted in our time in the Imperial Presidency and the undeclared wars in Vietnam and Cambodia.
