Ethics, Politics, and the Independent Counsel is the first-ever book-length study of the "special prosecutor" law passed in the aftermath of Watergate. Terry Eastland examines the origins and enactment of the law, as well as subsequent revisions. He analyzes the Supreme Court's recent opinion upholding the law in Morrison v. Olson. And he discusses how the law, which is scheduled to expire in 1992, should be amended and even rethought. A work of law, history, and public policy, Ethics, Politics, and the Independent Counsel raises important questions about an increasingly influential federal law and its implications for the future of American government.
