Presidents and War Powers

Here’s Brooks D. Simpson in a class on Presidents and their use of war powers. This is from one of his classes at Barrett, the Honors College, part of Arizona State University.

The video’s description reads, “Professor Brooks Simpson talked about the role of the president during wars, including wars waged without a formal congressional declaration. He also spoke about the ways American foreign policy and presidential powers have evolved.”

It’s a pretty good class, with engaged students. Brooks has acknowledged elsewhere that he misspoke around the 23 minute point in calling John Adams “John Quincy Adams.”
