I jumped at the chance to read this book and was really rewarded.
David E. Nelson
This book is a great rallying cry for one of those most under-reported events, the swelling movement to impeach this currently seated president.

An absolute must read for anyone who cares about this country and about the world.

Format: Paperback
When historians write of the period in which we are currently living, they are likely to judge this presidency as the most destructive since the foundation of the country. They are also likely to ask a central question: why did the populace accept the situation in such a docile fashion, with so little sense of proportion? How could there have been an impeachment of Mr. Bush's predecessor for having sex with an intern and yet no serious effort to remove from office Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney, whose lies and incompetence have led to hundreds of thousands of needless deaths in Iraq and will doom the planet to millennia of global warming? This book, edited by Dennis Loo and Peter Phillips, presents the case cogently and thoroughly, with much useful information. Even if one may not think that each item of the bill of particulars rises to the level of impeachment, so much does that one cannot help but wonder how the current Administration can remain not only in office but out of prison. Read this book -- and act!

Everyone knows that George W Bush and his sidekick have done a few things wrong. If you want the entire list, this is it. I thought I knew all their crimes but I am shocked.

My congressman & both senators are getting a photocopy of the list with a notice, "Things cannot get much worse anyway. If you do not follow this guide, do not expect my vote again. I can go green or libertarian if you cannot uphold The Constitution of the United States of America by removing these criminals."

Co-editors: Dennis Loo and Peter Phillips. I recognized Peter's name because he wrote the last chapter in "9/11 and American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out". I jumped at the chance to read this book and was really rewarded. I would rate the book a 10 on a scale of 1-5. Contributors like Greg Palast, Dahr Jamail, Mark Crispin Miller, etc. cover a wide range of topics all of which should lead to impeachment.

The chapters are about 20 pages each and the sequencing of topics is also noteworthy. One leads to the next with insightful explorations of the topics and the consciousness or lack of by the current administration.

I have already begun to mail copies to people who can carry this important issue forward. The book is a motivator to get involved. There is too much at stake and the time is too short to wait for someone else to carry the ball.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm sorry that I am going to break up the five star party for this book, but to do less would be dishonest. While I found the book to be good, with useful information, I also found several flaws that hurt the book for use as a primary source for those that wish to learn about the possibility of impeachment of President Bush.

The book is written as separate essays by various authors on different subjects that could lead to the impeachment of the President. Each of the articles, alone, would stand nicely and be a valuable piece in a magazine. When grouped together, however, there is a repetition of information that slows the book down and makes it tiring to read. Better editing could correct this problem.

A more serious flaw is the promotion of rather abstract theories to use in an impeachment procedure. Voter fraud in 2004, for one, probably happened, but it would be almost impossible to investigate thoroughly and incorporate as an impeachment article. And, while global warming is occurring, I don't think you can impeach a president for lack of action. That would be a policy decision, and if it were an impeachable offense, it will make every president a sitting duck for everyone that doesn't like their particular policies.

Finally, use of arguments such President Bush's campaign in Haiti are flawed. It will be difficult to get an impeachment with traditional charges, let alone on something that most Americans haven't heard about and probably don't care about either. Muddying the water with these items will make impeachment more difficult, and failing to get a conviction a near certainty. In addition, the writings are too "liberal" for most main stream Americans...the same ones who get their news from Fox and their ilk.

11 of 15 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on November 11, 2006
Format: Paperback
In Impeach the President, Dennis Loo and Peter Phillips make a compelling case for the impeachments of George Bush and Dick Chaney. The first essay is the best source I've read on what constitutes impeachment and the history of that process. The authors give twelve reasons why there should be an impeachment and offer a stunning and brilliant indictment of electoral fraud in the 2004 elections, of our mendacious "embedded" media,of the use of torture and war crimes by "the leaders of the free world," failed policies and Katrina, as well as and indictment of U.S. global goals, strategies and methods. This is a must read follow up to the November 2006 electoral rejection of Mr. Bush and his policies. I recommeded it highly for classes on American government and U.S. foreign policy.

Format: Paperback
This present volume may perhaps not be as legally sound as the Center for Constitutional Rights slimmer volume Articles of Impeachment, nor may it be as comprehensive as Lindorf's larger Case for Impeachment, yet it contains impassioned and scholarly please for justice for our nation, including from the great popular historian Howard Zinn and from everyone's beloved mother Ms. Sheehan.

Other contributers, including one of the editors, are familiar to those who follow the important PRoject Censored series. This book is a great rallying cry for one of those most under-reported events, the swelling movement to impeach this currently seated president. It carefully examines all of the well-known causes, including the voter fraud in both national elections, the flip flopping reasons for war with Iraq, this administrations crimes against humanity internationally, negligence at home including around 9/11 and the willfull criminal negligence leaving our elderly and infirm to die in the rain in New Orleans after having taken on responsibility days before, demonstrating nothing effective had happened to protect us since 9/11. For these and several other reasons the writers find reason to Impeach the President.

If you want a brief and legally sound presentation of the facts, just the facts, go for the Center for Constitutional Rights. But certainly supplement with this more elaborated and longer study which combines impassioned voices like the famous March on Washington forty years ago which is notable now under more dire circumstances only in its absence.
