"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
