Untrodden Ground: How Presidents Interpret the Constitution

By Harold H. Bruff, University of Chicago Press, 557 pages, $55

, New York Law Journal


As the Supreme Court grants certiorari in the State of Texas' constitutional challenge to President Obama's executive order on immigration, Professor Harold Bruff has written an impressive book that examines the powers and responsibilities of the president. An expert on the separation of powers, the author focuses special attention on the limits of executive orders and the duties imposed by the Faithful Execution clause of Article II—the two core constitutional issues to be addressed in the Texas case. It is a useful book that promotes understanding of the development of presidential power.
