    Mughan, Anthony
    The American form of government was founded on the key principle of checks and balances. By separating powers between the president and Congress, the founding fathers hoped that each would provide a counterweight to rein in the power of the other.

  2. Politics and Primacy: How Dictatorship and Development Set the Stage for Democratization

    Crenshaw, Edward
