Synopsis by Alice Day
How far does the power of the president extend? What are the limits of the highest office in the land, and how are those limits governed? As the country has grown, so has the range of executive authority granted to the president. This additional control has been questioned and contested. In The American President: Expanding Power, the focus is on four presidents who pushed the limits of their office -- Andrew Jackson, Grover Cleveland, Theodore Roosevelt, and Richard Nixon.
