"The best essay written on the subject."-Jeffrey Rosen, New Republic "[Black's] timely volume clearly and lucidly covers everything from what constitutes "high crimes and misdemeanors" to the scope of Executive privilege. . . .

Elegantly written, lucid, intelligent, and comprehensive."-Mary Ann Gale, New York Times Book Review "Black's survey is a dispassionate, invaluable beam of light. . . .
