Baker provides the first comprehensive analysis of the history and structure of the U.S. Attorney General. She documents how attorneys general have differed in their responses, seeing themselves as either advocates of the president or neutral expounders of the law. She focuses in particular on Robert Kennedy, Edwin Meese, Elliot Richardson, Griffin Bell, Robert Jackson, Edward Levi, A. Mitchell Palmer, and Roger Taney.
