Book Excerpt: Reconstructing the Presidency
The following is an excerpt from Presidential Reform Project co-directors Bob Bauer and Jack Goldsmith’s book, After Trump: Reconstructing the Presidency.
This selection provides a deeper explanation into the historical background behind Bauer and Goldsmith’s proposed reforms through PRP. It also adds proper context to why the contemporary Presidency is in need of reform.
To understand PRP’s vision for reform, Bauer and Goldsmith’s analysis captures the essential components of why their project is demanding a new era of Executive Branch reform, just as the post-Watergate reforms did decades ago.
