The history and future of our democracy's ultimate sanction, presidential impeachment, and a guide to how it should be used now
To End a Presidency addresses one of today's most urgent questions: when and whether to impeach a president. Laurence Tribe and Joshua Matz provide an authoritative guide to impeachment's past and a bold argument about its proper role today. In an era of expansive presidential power and intense partisanship, we must rethink impeachment for the twenty-first century.
Of impeachments, one Constitutional Convention delegate declared, "A good magistrate will not fear them. A bad one will be kept in fear of them." To End a Presidency is an essential book for all Americans seeking to understand how this crucial but fearsome power should be exercised.

Quite an informative read
I may start off by saying, I don’t completely agree with the views of Mr. Matz or Mr. Tribe. I found this book to be very informative and well deserving of a place on my scholarly bookshelf. It was quite fair, well thought out, and well written. They clearly had a view, but did not allow for this view to cloud their judgment of the issues at hand. I definitely learnt a lot from this book. I used it for some research materials and was quite pleased. I used this book quite a lot in my essay because it was that useful.
