Harward Publishes “Presidential Power”

Brian M. Harward, associate professor of political science and director of the Center for Political Participation, has published Presidential Power (ABC-CLIO/Greenwood Press). The book explores topics such as Japanese-American internment, the Watergate scandal, the Iran-Contra affair, and drone strikes to show how each presented tests of presidential power. The text utilizes events and developments throughout U.S. history — from the nation’s founding to the contemporary era — to demonstrate how these (and other) singular, focusing events are often reflections of broader political, economic, and social forces.
