Editorial Reviews

Review

"Thoughtful and thorough  ... makes a compelling argument for a change in a constitutionally granted power with excellent depth and well-chosen case studies." --The American Review of Politics 

"Professor Crouch's work is so valuable, timely, and well written, it is difficult to find anything about which to be highly critical."  --Congress & the Presidency 

" Crouch's analysis contains several provocative claims ... an accessible, wide-ranging discussion of an important aspect of presidential power."  --Law and Politics Book Review 

"Crouch ... persuasively argues that recent examples of the clemency power as exercised by George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush were misuses of the power and worthy of sharp criticism. ... Recommended."  --Choice

"In an era when the president's constitutional powers are ever more important, it is an anomaly that the pardon power has been so little analyzed. With clarity and insight, Crouch resolves that anomaly in this important new book.... A must-have for those who study the presidency and the Constitution."--Robert J. Spitzer, author of Saving the Constitution from Lawyers

"Comprehensive and crisply written, accessible but sophisticated, Crouch's masterly work strikes the right balance in tone and approach, while covering all the key questions relating to presidential pardons."--Michael Genovese, author of The Power of the American Presidency 1789-2000"

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have an interest in Gerald Ford's pardon of president Nixon in 1974. This is a very good book about the history of presidential pardons. Fascinating! A great read for anyone looking for background on this subject. Not a lot out there. This is a good read. Kudo's to author, Jeffrey Crouch!
