Selected U.S. Presidential Works from William S. Hein

With a historical presidential election only days away, William S. Hein & Co., Inc. is highlighting some of its presidential works:

Public Papers of the Presidents of the United States:
Containing the Public Messages, Speeches and Statements of the President

The Public Papers of the Presidents of the United States, a reprint series originally published by the Office of the Federal Register, National Archives and Records Administration, began in 1957 in response to a recommendation of the National Historical Publications Commission. Noting the lack of uniform compilations of messages and papers of the Presidents before this time, the Commission recommended the establishment of an official series in which Presidential writings, addresses, and remarks of a public nature could be made available. This set includes the papers of Presidents Kennedy, Nixon, Reagan, Clinton, Bush and many more! Continue to brochure.

Corwin also analyzes the many important roles of the American President, including Chief Executive, Administrative Chief, Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, and more. This work is based throughout on Corwin’s direct examination of firsthand materials – the debates of the Philadelphia Convention, debates in Congress, Acts of Congress, presidential messages and papers, controversial writings, and press dispatches.

Presidential Signing Statements Under the Bush Administration A Threat to Checks and Balances and the Rule of Law?

This title, never before offered in print format, is title number 25 in Hein’s Electronic Document Reprint Series. In July 2006, a task force of the American Bar Association described the use of signing statements to modify the meaning of duly enacted laws as “contrary to the rule of law and our constitutional system of separation of powers.” George W. Bush’s use of signing statements is controversial, both for the number of times employed (estimated at over 750 opinions) and for the apparent attempt to nullify legal restrictions on his accounts through claims made in the statements.

Electoral Count of 1877

Proceedings of the Electoral Commission and of the Two Houses of Congress in Joint Meeting Relative to the Count of Electoral Votes Cast December 6, 1876, for the Presidential Term Commencing March 4, 1877

The Electoral Commission was created by Congress to resolve the disputed United States presidential election of 1876. The election was contested by the Democrats and the Republican alike. At issue were 20 electoral votes from the states of Florida, Louisiana, Oregon and South Carolina, with the resolution of the dispute determining the outcome of the presidential election of 1876. Facing a constitutional crisis the likes of which the nation had never seen, Congress passed a law forming the Electoral Commission to settle the results of the election. Continue to brochure.
