The memoirs of former Vice President Dick Cheney advance — among other things — his expansive view of executive power. This Book Review discusses Cheney’s those views. It depicts Cheney’s Nixon Administration experience, his time as a member of Congress, and his service as secretary of defense and vice president. In all of his years of public service, Cheney did not become a skeptic of executive power. On the contrary, even as a member of Congress, he sought to safeguard executive power against what he — and others around him — saw as encroachment by Congress. This Book Review also highlights two notable instances in which Cheney, as a member of the Executive Branch, sought to protect presidential power — and one instance in which he worked to preserve the autonomy of the Vice President from the President and his staff.
