Waging War: The Clash Between Presidents and Congress, 1776 to ISIS

Reading. As someone familiar with a lot of the material, the book is pretty good (easy reading etc.), but disappointing in what it leaves out and somewhat bland at times overall. Nearly nothing on the Mexican War, which warrants a few more pages. Skips Washington's presidency, basically. Caught a mistake here and there (e.g., the losing candidate in 1896). In a way, liked the long article he co-authored better. Barron himself is part of the story.
