Repealing the War Powers Resolution: Restoring the Rule of Law in U.S. Foreign Policy

This 1991 volume is largely based upon testimony Professor Turner had given at the request of four different congressional committees on various aspects of the War Powers Resolution. It concludes that the 1973 statute was unnecessary, that important provisions of it are unconstitutional, and that it has undermined peace and endangered the lives of U.S. troops by promoting partisan and divisive debate during periods of national crisis.
