How much power should the president of the United States possess? This is the key question defining the debate over executive orders. While executive orders have played an important role in key policy changes throughout the United States' history, they can also be perceived as an abuse of power that allows the president to make important decisions without Congress's consent. Through the viewpoints included in this volume, readers will come to better understand what an executive order is and explore the key arguments for and against its usage.
