A Resurgent Congress and the Imperial Presidency
Thomas E. Cronin assesses the argument that Congress has successfully reasserted itself in national policymaking and seriously curbed the "imperial presidency." He finds that Congress has indeed become more involved in national policymaking and that constraints have been added to the way presidents exercise their powers. Cronin concludes that whatever reassertion has taken place may not last and that, in any event, the presidency has not been weakened as much as some commentators have claimed.
