The sensible and informed essays in this volume explicitly refrain from pontificating in favor of presidential or congressional primacy. They argue that the Constitution and the practicality of American democracy require a shared role for the two branches in the making and implementation of foreign policy. This truth may seem obvious, but it needs the kind of careful reiteration to be found here. Individual chapters deal with war powers, intelligence, arms control, diplomacy and trade policy.
