By Kenneth W. Starr. Published 2000. ISBN 9780718716172
Citing his background in U.S. law and, in particular, as an independent prosecutor, Kenneth Starr surveys the history of the independent counsel mechanism, the so-called means to unveil what is wrong with government. It seems to be the case that whenever the government errs ethically, an independent counsel is called upon to discover the source of any faux pas. Rather than examining the essence of these historical blunders, Starr scrutinizes the actual mechanism involved.
