He is the president and CEO of the National Constitution Center, a law professor at George Washington University, and a contributing editor for The Atlantic. He was previously the legal affairs editor of The New Republic and a staff writer for The New Yorker.

Reviews

"Rosen aptly observes that by some measures -- trusts prosecuted, acreage protected, tariffs reduced -- Taft was more progressive than Roosevelt. Yet his style could hardly have been less Rooseveltian. Rosen, a law professor and a biographer of Louis Brandeis, makes a compelling argument for Taft's importance as a conservator of the Constitution on the subject of presidential powers."--The Washington Post

"Rosen's writing is clear and his research shines. This well-written and well-told story is in some ways more relevant today than when it happened. Do not miss this one."--San Francisco Book Review

"This slim, well-researched and well-written biography substantially beefs up Taft's reputation."--Forbes
