A professor at Duquesne University Law School details the wide-ranging investigation into President Clinton "that divided the nation and nearly toppled Clinton's presidency. From special prosecutor Kenneth W. Starr's initial probe of the Whitewater land deal in Arkansas to the Paula Jones sexual harassment suit to the Monica Lewinsky affair, culminating in a dramatic Senate impeachment trial," the author relies on exclusive interviews with President Clinton, Ken Starr, Monica Lewinsky and family, Linda Tripp, Paula Jones, Susan McDougal and many other key players as well as documents from the Justice Department's internal investigation into Starr.--Dust jacket
Archibald Cox : conscience of a nation by Ken Gormley( Book )

7 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ken Gormley's gripping biography shows how that confrontation was a natural result of the principles, hard as New England granite, which guided Archibald Cox through life. In his distinguished and dramatic career, Cox had clerked for the legendary judge Learned Hand, carpooled into Washington with Harold Ickes during World War II, and chaired Harry Truman's Wage Stabilization Board. On the Harvard faculty he was the nation's foremost expert in labor law, and he became the top academic adviser to the handsome young senator from Massachusetts, John F. Kennedy. After President Kennedy named him Solicitor General of the United States, the professor grew into the leading Supreme Court lawyer of the century. Through extensive interviews, the author illuminates Cox's crucial role in the debates within Bobby Kennedy's Justice Department over how to handle integration sit-ins, voting rights, and other constitutional questions
The Presidents and the Constitution : a living history by Ken Gormley( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this sweepingly ambitious volume, the nation's foremost experts on the American presidency and the U.S. Constitution join together to tell the intertwined stories of how each American president has confronted and shaped the Constitution. Each occupant of the office--the first president to the forty-fourth--has contributed to the story of the Constitution through the decisions he made and the actions he took as the nation's chief executive. By examining presidential history through the lens of constitutional conflicts and challenges, The Presidents and the Constitution offers a fresh perspective on how the Constitution has evolved in the hands of individual presidents. It delves into key moments in American history, from Washington's early battles with Congress to the advent of the national security presidency under George W. Bush and Barack Obama, to reveal the dramatic historical forces that drove these presidents to action. Historians and legal experts, including Richard Ellis, Gary Hart, Stanley Kutler and Kenneth Starr, bring the Constitution to life, and show how the awesome powers of the American presidency have been shaped by the men who were granted them. The book brings to the fore the overarching constitutional themes that span this country's history and ties together presidencies in a way never before accomplished."--Book jacket
