Terry Eastland, with great grace and compelling logic, has written the definitive case against the independent counsel law, the child of Watergate...Eastland's voice needs to be heard in this era of impulsive morality.>>>> (Sidey, Hugh 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.
