Like Tocqueville, the Marquis de Chambrum was fascinated bythe United States and its government. He also sharedTocqueville's belief that the United States is a testingground for the forces shaping the modern world. Chambrum'sstudy of the federal government's executive branch offers anumber of interesting observations. He doubts the value ofthe vice-presidency and argues that quadrennial electionspromote liberty by creating momentary periods of politicalinstability. He offers equally interesting observations onsuch topics as the Civil War, the impeachment of PresidentJohnson and the relationship between the Executive,Legislative and Judicial branches.Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S.
