Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 8 UpA clearly written text defines impeachment, its processes, and its role in American political history. Morin begins by describing the separation of powers in American government and how it has contributed to struggles between the president and Congress. The body of the book deals with the potential impeachments of Andrew Johnson and Richard Nixon. The recounting of the time period leading up to the Watergate scandal and its aftermath is compelling and evenhanded. Boxes within the text highlight relevant material, and definitions of terms and concepts are woven smoothly into the well-documented text. Average-quality, black-and-white reproductions and photographs appear throughout. A good research tool for students of American history and government.Sylvia V.
