Undeclared War: Twilight Zone of Constitutional Power
Undeclared War: Twilight Zone of Constitutional Power
By Edward Keynes
Penn State Press, 1982, 236 pp.

A fresh examination of the 200-year old question of presidential and congressional powers in military action and foreign policy, looking particularly at the accretion of power in the hands of the President and the degree to which the judicial branch has attempted, or should attempt, to make decisions in the twilight zone. It is a searching inquiry, ranging from the early years of the republic to the Vietnam War, but because of the nature of the Constitution itself, necessarily inconclusive.
