 Separating Power -- Gerhard Casper
As noted constitutional law scholar Gerhard Casper points out in this collection of essays, barren assertions of the importance of keeping the powers separate do not capture the complexity of the task when it is seen as separating power flowing from a single source - the people.
Separating Power gives us a clear portrait of the issues of separation of power in the founding period, as well as suggesting that in modern times we should be reluctant to tie separation of powers notions to their own procrustean bed.
In these elegant and illuminating essays, Gerhard Casper explores the struggles and complexities that faced the founding generation and how it informs current debates.

 H-Net Review: R. B. Bernstein on Separating Power: Essays on the Founding Period
In his first essay, Casper examines ideas of separation of powers in the era of constitution-making from 1776 through 1789; though much of the ground he covers will be familiar to readers of Gwyn and Vile, his distillation of the problems is valuable for its lucidity.
Casper's second essay examines the conduct of government in the Washington Administration, including such issues as how the executive and legislative branches communicated with each other, the establishment of the executive departments, and the consequences for separation of powers of the Washington Administration's attempts to resolve the problems of the Algerian captives.
Casper cites far more law-review articles from modern debates on separation of powers than he does historians' treatments of the workings of government.

This book, in its simple and elegant directness, is a compelling account of the struggles and complexity that confronted the founding generation as they erected a constituting regime of separated powers.
