Is it ever a crime to criticize the president? Can states legally resist a president's executive order? And can the president launch a nuclear attack without congressional approval? In today's fraught political climate, it often seems as if we must become constitutional law scholars just to understand the news from Washington, let alone make a responsible decision at the polls. Here Corey Brettschneider guides us through the Constitution and explains the powers and limits that it places on the presidency—including, if need be, removing the person in it. Along with profiles of James Madison and Alexander Hamilton, here too are reappraisals of historic cases like Brown v. Board of Education and Korematsu v. United States.
