When Boris Yeltsin calls out the tanks and shells parliament, or when he pins medals on veterans, both acts are called executive decrees, but we do not understand both to be equivalent examples of executive discretion over policymaking. Executives increasingly take (or are given) the authority to act without concurrent legislative action. This book offers a theory of political institutions that predicts when executives should turn to decree and when legislatures should accept -- or even prefer -- this method of making policy. Extensive case studies demonstrate how decree has been used and abused in widely different political environments.

"This important book is well worth the attention of comparativists and should serve as a guide to further endeavours in the field of executive-legislative relations." William M. Downs, Canadian Journal of Political Science "This intriguing book provides useful conceptual tools for analyzing presidential decree authority...Executive Decree Authority will be helpful both as a handbook that will inform the literature on the different practices of executive decree authority in various presidential democracies and as a work that provides a more nuanced analysis of the subject." Latin American Research Review "This important book is well worth the attention of comparativists and should serve as a guide to further endeavours in the field of executive-legislative relations." William M. Downs, Canadian Journal of Political Science
