Description
 
Robert C. Byrd (au); Richard A. Baker (fr). On May 5, 1993, U.S. Sen. Robert Byrd initiated a series of 14 addresses in opposition to the proposed line-item-veto concept. During the following 5-1/2 months, he delivered each of these speeches entirely from memory & without recourse to notes. He devised the equivalent of a 14-week univ. seminar on the constitutional history of separated & shared powers as shaped in the republic & empire of ancient Rome. He saw ample parallels in the history of England & ancient Rome between the willingness of Roman senators to hand over powers of the purse to usurping exec. & the compliant attitude of U.S. senators in responding to presidential urging for a similar grant of powers in a line-item veto constitutional amend. This volume contains those speeches.
