...I commend Terry Eastland's new book....>>>> (Ronald D. Rotunda In The Wall Street Journal)

...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.>>>> (Edwin M. Yoder Ronald D. Rotunda In The Wall Street Journal)

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.>>> (Carter, Stephen Ronald D. Rotunda In The Wall Street Journal)

Format: Paperback
Eastland's book makes the case that the Independend Counsel Statute is not only expensive, impractical and unconstitutional, but that it also relieves the President and Congress of their accountability and responsibility to act in accordance with ethical politics. The "ethics of politics," which are the traditional (pre-1978) mechanisms for prosecuting executive 'malfeasance,' were enough to get rid of Nixon and should be all that we need to address the problem.
