MEDIA REVIEWS

'Brown's book provides the authoritative account of the meaning of high crimes and misdemeanors as it evolved from English and Colonial practice and was applied in presidential impeachments in the United States. Brown provides important insights into what the Founders were thinking when they created the impeachment process and demonstrates how Congress's handling of the famous impeachment cases of Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon, and Bill Clinton was influenced by and at times departed from the Framers' intentions. The book makes a valuable contribution to the study of the presidency and American political history, and will prove an invaluable guide when the topic of impeachment (almost inevitably) again rises to the top of the public agenda.' - Eric Schickler, Department of Political Science, University of California, Berkeley

'Brown has put together an impressive, extensive analysis of the early history of the impeachment process in Great Britain as well as this country. It is unquestionably one of the most comprehensive, detailed analyses of the legal arguments in the impeachment proceedings against Presidents Nixon, Johnson, and Clinton.' - Michael Gerhardt, author of The Federal Impeachment Process

'A fresh and sharply-focused examination of the grounds for impeachment as defined by the frames of the Constitution and since employed by the Congress, H. Lowell Brown's High Crimes and Misdemeanors in Presidential Impeachment should interest students of the American past and assist those - perish the thought - compelled to deal with presidential impeachment in the future.' - David E. Kyvig, author of The Age of Impeachment: American Constitutional Culture since 1960
