After reading advance review copies of Scott Barker’s forthcoming book "Impeachment-A Political Sword" three prominent jurists were quick to respond with their comments

"This is the definitive guide to the constitutional meaning of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors,’ and an invaluable aid for the current debates on impeachment.”

After receiving his advance copy of "Impeachment-A Political Sword", John M. Vaught, President of the Colorado Bar Association hailed Scott Barker’s book as the definitive guide on presidential impeachment. He wrote “Scott Barker has authored the only book you’ll need to read to understand the complex story of the impeachment process. The work of a Rhodes Scholar, former military officer, and trial lawyer of 40 years, this is the definitive guide to the constitutional meaning of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors,’ and an invaluable aid for the current debates on impeachment.”                    

On the same day, Richard D. Lamm, former Colorado Governor, attorney and professor wrote of the relevance of Scott Barker’s book “A literary double-header: riveting history and lessons relating to your morning newspaper” he wrote.” Impeachment is a safety valve available to a democracy but dangerous if over-used. Lessons from yesterday ever more relevant to today, delivered in compelling prose. Wonderfully readable!”                                                                                                                    

Hours later, R. Brooke Jackson, United States District Judge wrote “A rarity: a serious work that will make you wish you’d majored in history. Whether through his insights into the impeachments of Presidents Johnson, Clinton, and nearly Nixon, or his exploration of the differing perspectives about what constitutes an impeachable offense, Mr. Barker makes the impeachment process both fascinating and understandable. That he manages to do this while remaining balanced is all the more remarkable. A must read.”

Author, attorney and historian,Scott Barker is a graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy, a Rhodes Scholar and graduate of Harvard Law School with honors. A trial lawyer for forty years, he is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers.

"Impeachment-A Political Sword" will be published by History Publishing Company on November 9. It will be available in good bookstores nationally and in fine outlets internationally in Canada, United Kingdom, Austria, Germany, Spain and Luxembourg.
