This fascinating study of the historical and political landscape of impeachment begins with the development of colonial governments in North America, and then chronicles the events that led to the Revolution and subsequent war for American Independence. The book proceeds to detail the impeachment practice under the first state constitutions, along with an analysis of the impeachment provisions of the United States Constitution adopted in 1789. Finally, several case studies are reported in The History, Law and Politics of Federal Impeachment, including the impeachment of Senator William Blount, the impeachment and trials of U. S. District Judge John Pickering, Supreme Court Justice Samuel Chase, and Presidents Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton.
