In a classic guide to presidential impeachment, Charles L. Black clarifies the issues and questions that surround this controversial subject. With a new foreword by constitutional expert Akhil Reed Amar, this authoritative book is essential reading for every concerned citizen.

"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. . . . The measure of his book's achievement is that it tells the reader not what to think but what to think about."—Time

"A citizen's guide to impeachment. . . . Elegantly written, lucid, intelligent, and comprehensive."—Mary Ann Gale, New York Times Book Review

"Black's survey is a dispassionate, invaluable beam of light. . . . This everyman's guide to impeachment outlines the process leading to the removal of a President by Congress, places it in historical perspective, [and] discusses the conundrums that spring from it. . . . It provides a major contribution to sanity in our government."—Newsweek

"A model of how so serious an act of state should be approached."—Wall Street Journal
