American Burke

The Uncommon Liberalism of Daniel Patrick Moynihan

Daniel Patrick Moynihan, one of the late 20th century’s leading public intellectuals, defied easy categorizations throughout his extraordinary life. In this perceptive and carefully argued study, Greg Weiner argues persuasively that Moynihan was an “uncommon liberal”  who embodied liberal and conservative strains and believed in an activist government even as he remained skeptical about government’s capacity to produce change. This fine intellectual biography highlights Moynihan’s extraordinary honesty and range of interests and will remind readers how public life has been diminished since his passing.

The Contested Removal Power, 1789 – 2010

By J. David Alvis, Jeremy D. Bailey, and F. Flagg Taylor IV

The U.S. Constitution is clear on the appointment of executive officials: the president nominates, the Senate approves. But on the question of removing those officials, the Constitution is silent—although that silence has not discouraged strenuous efforts to challenge, censure, and even impeach presidents from Andrew Jackson to Bill Clinton. As J. David Alvis, Jeremy D. Bailey, and Flagg Taylor show, the removal power has always been and continues to be a thorny issue, especially as presidential power has expanded dramatically during the past century.
