Editorial Reviews

Ronald D. Rotunda In The Wall Street Journal
...I commend Terry Eastland's new book....
Ronald D. Rotunda In The Wall Street Journal - Edwin M. Yoder
...comes as a breath of fresh air....this superb monograph is virtually our only mature and searching dissection of an ignoble experiment with American liberties....a fine and even magisterial piece of work.
Ronald D. Rotunda In The Wall Street Journal - Hugh Sidey
Terry Eastland, with great grace and compelling logic, has written the definitive case against the independent counsel law, the child of Watergate...Eastland's voice needs to be heard in this era of impulsive morality.
Ronald D. Rotunda In The Wall Street Journal - Stephen Carter
Mr. Eastland has penned a lively and energetic book, an important contribution to the debate over the independent counsel law. When the time comes for the statute's renewal, its supporters will have to contend with his forceful and well-crafted arguments.
National Review
...illuminating...Eastland has written a compact, graceful study of a critical contemporary subplot in the long drama of American constitutional law.
