    Hardcover✓ The Impeachers MOBI ´ impeachers mobile, The Impeachers MOBIThis was a fun page turner that revealed real detailed history She writes with an angle from current times but explains as best the record will permit the motivations manipulations and goals of many players This may become a definitive work on the impeachment of Andrew Johnson I have read several books from this era and learned a way of seeing some of the players from a deeper perspective and greater understanding This would be a great book for freshman studying political scienceA great part of the book is buried at the end with the notes and index It is a short biographical on most of the people mentioned in the book The similarity and the differences with the other impeachment Nixon's near impeachment and current events regarding President Trump were discussed with some analysis and this added relevancy to this great piece of American History writing

    Hardcover✓ The Impeachers MOBI ´ impeachers mobile, The Impeachers MOBII grew up in the ’90s and I vaguely remember on TV when I was a kid some kind of scandal involving this guy named Bill Clinton whom I knew as the President of the United States The word impeachment kept getting thrown around but of course I didn’t really know what that meant Fast forward 20 years and the word has resurfaced as a possible fate for the current President Donald Trump—and this time I knew what the word meant but I didn’t really understand what impeachment entails So Brenda Wineapple’s book on the impeachment of Andrew Johnson came into my life at an opportune time The Impeachers explains the nature of presidential impeachment through a case study of one of the only two presidents ever to be impeached However it is much much than that It’s really a snapshot of American history immediately following the American Civil War Thanks to NetGalley and Random House for the eARCHere in Canada we learn some very bare bones Amer
