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."
