Description

This course will explore the relationship between the Legislative and Executive branches of the U.S. government. We will examine the enduring power struggle between the branches as well as contemporary disputes. We will consider the relations between the Trump, Obama, and Bush Administrations and the Congress. The course will cover the history and changing dynamic of this relationship and will use the historical record, media coverage, and legal cases to illustrate this conflict. We will also compare a number of contemporary presidents' style, tactics, and constitutional arguments.

This course is in the American subfield.
