Unquestioning obedience to the President : the ACLU case against the illegal war in Vietnam by Leon Friedman( Book )

8 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains ther legal documents in two related cases challenging the constitutionality of the Vietnam War. Congress was deceived about plans to bomb North Vietnam as early as Feb., 1964. Thus the period of congressional deception by the Executive branch lasted from early 1964 until the summer of 1965, when American ground trooops began to arrive in force in Vietnam. At that point a new relationship between the president and Congress was created, lasting from May, 1965 until the middle of 1969. This second phase consisted of congressional acquiescence in military actions in Vietnam. Once the president had secured the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution and commenced the rapid escalation of the war, he thought he would have no difficulty in persuading Congress to pay the increasing bills for the war. He knew that Congress would find it impossible to deny funds for military supplies needed to supply and protect troops in the field

"Brown v. Board of Education sparked a revolution in race relations that transformed America's social and political landscape. Argued before the U.S. Supreme Court in 1952 and 1953, the case was an historic encounter between the forces of racial segregation and the burgeoning civil rights movement. The resulting decision, which outlawed segregation in public schools, set the stage for decades of legal and political disputes that have yet to be resolved." "On the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the decision, The New Press is publishing the transcripts of the oral arguments before the Supreme Court in the Brown case. Never before available to a general reading audience, the Brown transcripts are among the most revealing documents of contemporary history, with a cast of characters - Thurgood Marshall, Hugo Black, Felix Frankfurter, and many others - that includes some of the towering legal and political figures of the past century." "With introductory essays by Leon Friedman and Waldo E. Martin, Jr., Brown v. Board is the essential starting point for anyone interested in the modern struggle for civil rights."--BOOK JACKET
