    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. President Trump continues to misuse the constitutional power to pardon. Most recently, he commuted the sentence of Roger Stone, seemingly as a reward for Stone’s refusal to tell prosecutors, Congress or the public what he knows about Trump’s involvement with Wikileaks and materials hacked by Russia during the campaign.

    In Guantánamo: An American History, Jonathan M. Hansen presents the first complete account of this fascinating place. The U.S. presence at Guantánamo predates even the nation itself, as the bay figured centrally in the imperial expansion plans of colonist and British sailor Lawrence Washington—half brother of the future president George.

The President, meanwhile, derives the power to direct the military after a Congressional declaration of war from Article II, Section 2, which names the President Commander-in-Chief of the armed provisions require cooperation between the President and Congress .

    illustrations of abuse of power and corruption, Part II explores how power is exercised within the three branches of government in Kenya. Part III analyzes the provisions of the new constitution dealing with the branches of government. Part IV concludes with observations on the. Official Secrets Act, () Cap. (Kenya). He also aided prominent civil rights (and MacArthur Justice Center) attorney Joseph Margulies on his book, Guantanamo and the Abuse of Presidential Power. He currently works as an attorney at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher and Flom .
