Responding to students' requests, professors at UW Law School pulled together a course on presidential powers just months after the 2016 election. Now, Professors Lisa Manheim and Kathryn Watts have written a short and lucid book, "The Limits of Presidential Power: A Citizens' Guide to the Law," available on Amazon. The book explores the legal basis for presidential powers and steps Congress, citizens, and the courts can take to protect the rule of law. Among the topics the authors focus on are the various checks on presidential power, in both law and politics, and a close look at the powers in the presidential "toolkit."

McNeely shot 20,000 roles of film during this time and from that massive output 200+ images made the cut for this tribute. The result is an intimate, visual journey through the Clinton presidency.

One image, of Clinton touching the Dalai Lama’s hand while listening to him speak during a meeting, lead to the Chinese government seizing half the 18,000 copy print run

 Executive Order 9066: The Internment of 110,000 Japanese Americans
