    About The Book

    In wartime, Presidents are always tempted to expand their authority. But in doing so, they often reach beyond their constitutional mandate. Although the use of military tribunals can be necessary and even effective in times of war. Louis Fisher contends that those courts present a grave danger to open government and the separation of powers. Citing the constitutional provision vesting Congress with the authority to create tribunals. Fisher address the threats posed by the dramatic expansion of presidential power in time of war-“and the meek efforts of Congress and the judiciary to curb it. “Military Tribunals and Presidential Power is the only book to offer detailed and comprehensive coverage of these extra-legal courts, taking in the sweep of American history from colonial times to today’s headlines. Focusing on those periods when the Constitution and civil liberties have been most severely tested by threats to national security, Fisher critiques tribunals called during the presidencies of Washington, Madison, Jackson. Lincoln, Andrew Johnson, Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, and Truman. He also examines other presidential actions that present military justifications to augment political power. Such as suspending the writ of habeas corpus, invoking martial law, and using courts-martial to try U.S. citizens Fisher also analyzes how the Bush administration relied heavily on precedents set in World War II-“notably the Supreme court’s opinion regarding Nazi sabotcurs. Ex parie Quirin, a case shown in recent times to have been a rush to judgment. He scrutinizes the much-publicized cases of John Walker Lindh. Yaser Esam Hamdi Jose Padilla. Zacarias Moussaoui and the Guantanamo detainees to revealhow the executive branch has gone far beyond the bounds of even Quirking and he suggests that it is short-sighted to believe that what was only tolerable half a century ago should be accepted as a given today: Fisher’s book cuts to the bone of current controversies and sounds as alarm for maintaining the checks and balances we value as a nation.
