The New York Times bestseller!
"A brilliant lawyer...A new and very important book. I would encourage all people...to read!"—President Donald J. Trump
“Absolutely amazing.... If you care about justice...you’re going to want to read this book.”—Sean Hannity
“Maybe the question isn’t what happened to Alan Dershowitz. Maybe it’s what happened to everyone else.”—Politico
Alan Dershowitz has been called “one of the most prominent and consistent defenders of civil liberties in America” by Politico and “the nation’s most peripatetic civil liberties lawyer and one of its most distinguished defenders of individual rights” by Newsweek. Yet he has come under partisan fire for applying those same principles to Donald Trump during the course of his many appearances in national media outlets as an expert resource on civil and constitutional law.
The Case Against Impeaching Trump seeks to reorient the debate over impeachment to the same standard that Dershowitz has continued to uphold for decades: the law of the United States of America, as established by the Constitution. In the author’s own words:
“In the fervor to impeach President Trump, his political enemies have ignored the text of the Constitution. As a civil libertarian who voted against Trump, I remind those who would impeach him not to run roughshod over a document that has protected us all for two and a quarter centuries. In this case against impeachment, I make arguments similar to those I made against the impeachment of President Bill Clinton (and that I would be making had Hillary Clinton been elected and Republicans were seeking to impeach her). Impeachment and removal of a president are not entirely political decisions by Congress. Every member takes an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution sets out specific substantive criteria that MUST be met.
I am thrilled to contribute to this important debate and especially that my book will be so quickly available to readers so they can make up their own minds.”

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I hope Mr Dershowitz reads this as I am not sure he gets too many non hateful messages. Book was insightful into mind of a rational thinking liberal. If he could only be the "Merlin" of liberals and cast a spell over others to speak rationally about items of interest, the unrest could soften considerably. All in all a book worth reading no matter your views.
I was skeptical when I first saw this book, but I find Dershowitz’s interviews to be compelling so I wanted to read more. This book is excellent. It is a compilation of many essays and interviews, but together form a compelling argument for a neutral view toward protecting the constitution and civil rights. I don’t claim to have the wisdom of Professor Dershowitz, but I have been concerned about how our current political climate is “poisoning the water” for the future and perhaps setting us up for an even worse climate later. Professor Dershowitz explains in direct and blunt terms why this is potentially the case and - whether you are conservative or liberal - why this should concern you. He even offers prescriptions for changes that can made. If you want to better understand what is happening and why, read this book!
