An American History
Authors Jon Meacham, Timothy Naftali, Peter Baker and Jeffrey A. Engel review the only three impeachment cases from history - against Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon, and Bill Clinton - and explore its power and meaning for today.
In the first book to consider these three presidents alone, and the one thing they have in common, the authors explain that impeachment is a political process more than it is a legal verdict. These three cases highlight factors beyond the president's behavior that impact the likelihood and outcome of an impeachment: the president's relationship with Congress, the power and resilience of the office itself, and the polarization of the moment. This is a realist, rather than hypothetical, view of impeachment that looks to history for clues about its future.
All four authors are expert scholars and journalists of the American presidency, making regular TV news appearances on major networks; and they write regularly for popular audiences in newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Time, Slate, and Foreign Affairs. This history is a crucial opportunity to reflect on our troubling times.
