4 ALVIS, J. DAVID; BAILEY, JEREMY D. & TAYLOR IV, F. FLAGG. The Contested Removal Power, 1789-2010.
University Press of Kansas, Lawrence: 2013. American Political Thought Series. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
The U.S. Constitution is clear on the appointment of executive officials: the president nominates, the Senate approves. But on the question of removing those officials, the Constitution is silent—although that silence has not discouraged strenuous efforts to challenge, censure, and even impeach presidents from Andrew Jackson to Bill Clinton. As J. David Alvis, Jeremy D. Bailey, and Flagg Taylor show, the removal power has always been and continues to be a thorny issue, especially as presidential power has expanded dramatically during the past century. Linking this provocative issue to American political and constitutional development, the authors recount removal power debate from the Founding to the present day. Understanding the historical context of outbreaks in the debate, they contend, is essential to sorting out the theoretical claims from partisan maneuvering and sectional interests, enabling readers to better understand the actual constitutional questions involved. After a detailed review of the Decision of 1789, the book examines the initial assertions of executive power theory, particularly by Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson, then the rise of the argument for congressional delegation, beginning with the Whigs and ending with the impeachment of Andrew Johnson. The authors chronicle the return of executive power theory in the efforts of Presidents Grant, Hayes, Garfield, and Cleveland, who all battled with Congress over removals, then describe the emergence of new institutional arrangements with the creation of independent regulatory commissions. They conclude by tracking the rise of the unitarians and the challenges that this school has posed to the modern administrative state. Although many scholars consider the matter to have been settled in 1789, the authors argue that a Supreme Court case as recent as 2010—Free Enterprise Fund v. Public Company Accounting Oversight Board—shows the extent to which questions surrounding removal power remain unresolved and demand more attention. Their work offers a more nuanced and balanced account of the debate, teasing out the logic of the different institutional perspectives on this important constitutional question as no previous book has. "This book is important not merely for what it says about the ability of presidents to fire bureaucrats, a topic worthy of study in its own right, but for its probing account of broader theories of constitutionalism and executive power that undergird and fortify claims about removal powers. . . . Deserves a privileged place in the conversation about the proper scope of presidential power."—William Howell, author of Power without Persuasion: The Politics of Direct Presidential Action "A highly original contribution to presidential studies and American constitutional studies more generally. It will prove to be an invaluable resource for political scientists, law professors, and historians who seek to understand the relationship of executive power to American constitutionalism."—Joseph M. Bessette, coeditor of The Constitutional Presidency "The first great fight about presidential power occurred not over war and peace, but over the right to fire federal officers. This volume reveals the centrality of the evolving arguments over the removal power to the revolutionary presidencies of Jefferson and Jackson, and FDR and Reagan. A must read for any student of the American Presidency."—John Yoo, author of Crisis and Command: A History of Executive Power from George Washington to George W. Bush J. DAVID ALVIS is an assistant professor of government at Wofford College. JEREMY D. BAILEY is an associate professor of political science at the University of Houston and author of Thomas Jefferson and Executive Power. F. FLAGG TAYLOR IV is an associate professor of government at Skidmore College and editor of The Great Lie: Classic and Recent Appraisals of Ideology and Totalitarianism.

16 BOREN, DAVID. A Letter To America.
University of Oklahoma Press, Norman: 2011. Reprint Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
A powerful wake-up call to all Americans. With only 6 percent of the world's population, how long will the United States remain a global superpower? The answer, David Boren tells us in A Letter to America, depends on asking ourselves tough questions. A powerful wake-up call to Americans, A Letter to America, forces us to take a bold, objective look at ourselves. In A Letter to America, Boren explains with unsparing clarity why the country is at a crossroads and why decisive action is urgently needed and offers us an ambitious, hopeful plan. What the country needs, Boren asserts, are major reforms to restore the ability of our political system to act responsibly. By relying on our shared values, we can replace cynicism with hope and strengthen our determination to build a better future. We must fashion a post-Cold War foreign policy that fits twenty-first-century realities—including multiple contending superpowers. We must adopt campaign finance reform that curbs the influence of special interests and restores political power to the voters. Universal health care coverage, budget deficit reduction, affordable higher education, and a more progressive tax structure will strengthen the middle class. Boren also describes how we can renew our emphasis on quality primary and secondary education, revitalize our spirit of community, and promote volunteerism. He urges the teaching of more American history and government, for without educated citizens our system cannot function and our rights will not be preserved. Unless we understand how we became great, we will not remain great. The plan Boren puts forward is optimistic and challenges Americans to look into the future, decide what we want to be and where we want to go, and then implement the policies and actions we need to take us there. Former Senator David Boren, a Rhodes Scholar, was the longest-serving chair of the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee. A former Governor of Oklahoma, he has served as President of the University of Oklahoma for the past fourteen years.
