Madison’s Nightmare: How Executive Power Threatens American Democracy by Peter M. Shane is today’s Free eBook of the Day.

The book explores how the job of United States president has grown over the years. Here is a description: “A thirty-year bipartisan trend in the American presidency is the expansion of executive power. Peter Shane shows how presidents exert ever more control over nearly every arena of policy, from military affairs and national security to domestic programs. This ‘aggressive presidency’ subverts the founders’ vision of representative government.”
