Rhodes Scholar, former U.S. Air Force Officer and Harvard Law School graduate, Scott Barker’s forthcoming book "Impeachment-A Political Sword" will be published November 9, 2018 by History Publishing Company.
The book is a comprehensive work that traces the development of presidential impeachment from a check on the misuse of power to a political weapon. Attorney and historian Scott Barker brings to life Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton and, in doing so, shows how their flaws led to their impeachment battles with Congress and shaped what was meant to be a check on abusive presidential power into a partisan political weapon.

The book is unique. It brings clarity to a national issue seen through the lens of the author who is both an historian who provides the color of history and the legal expert who provides the exactitude of written law. Adding to that, it is also the work of a former military intelligence officer who brought a strong, unwavering analysis to the work. His book will bring to the public forum a clear understanding of a political weapon and its origin as a Constitutional provision.
“This book should be on the bookshelves of every school library and in every social studies curriculum,” says Publisher Donagh Bracken. “It is a book of exceptional merit and should be required reading for every student in school today.”
