As the Trump administration careens from crisis to crisis, pundits and ordinary citizens alike are talking about when and how America can remove an unfit president. It's a fraught issue. Removing a president prematurely, or for partisan reasons, is dangerous. But not removing an unfit president may be even more dangerous.

This timely and accessible book looks at all aspects of presidential impeachment, starting with its place in the constitutional design. It then explores its history, telling the stories of the impeachment sagas involving Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon, and Bill Clinton. The book also includes a chapter on the intriguing question of whether a president can be impeached for self-pardoning, something the current President has allegedly looked into. But the book also ranges beyond impeachment, locating presidential removal within the context of popular sovereignty (the People's control of government) and including a chapter on the twenty-fifth Amendment, the other means of removing an unfit president.

Finally, To Repeal and Replace a President includes a chapter that draws lessons from American history that could help guide Congress and the nation as we move toward possibly the most dramatic effort yet to remove an unfit president.

Alan Hirsch, an Instructor in the Humanities and Chair of the Justice and Law Studies program at Williams College, is the author of numerous works of legal scholarship and many books including For the People: What the Constitution Really Says About Your Rights (Free Press) (coauthored with Akhil Amar) and A Citizen's Guide to Impeachment (Essential Books).
