National Security and Double Government

National Security and Double Government

Why has U.S. security policy scarcely changed from the Bush to the Obama administration? National Security and Double Government offers a disquieting answer. Michael J. Glennon challenges the myth that U.S. security policy is still forged by America's visible, "Madisonian institutions"-the President, Congress, and the courts. This paperback version features an Afterword that addresses the emerging danger posed by populist authoritarianism rejecting thenotion that the security bureaucracy can or should be relied upon to block it.
