The Presidents and the Constitution: a living history. Ken Gormley, ed. New York University Press, 2016.

KF5053.P75 2016


The essays in this book attempt to tell the story of the complex, ever-changing relationship between the U.S. Constitution and the presidency. Unlike a typical treatise on executive power, the book is arranged chronologically, with a separate chapter assigned to each of the 44 presidents of the United States.






Thomas W. Simon. Genocide, torture, and terrorism: ranking international crimes and justifying humanitarian intervention. Palgrave Macmillan, 2016.

KZ1261.S575 2016


This book explores the problem of “ranking” moral atrocities, and how it relates to the manipulation of public opinion regarding genocide, torture, and terrorism. The author argues for an international criminal code that would provide a clear rationale for humanitarian intervention.
