Summary, etc.: Twenty years after the Starr Report and the Clinton impeachment, former special prosecutor Ken Starr shares his account of one of the most divisive periods in American history. Bill and Hillary Clinton have told their version of events, as have journalists and participants. But what if the popular media in the 1990s completely misunderstood Starr's motives, his tactics, and his ultimate goal: to ensure that no one, especially not the president of the United States, is above the law? Here, Starr sheds light on everything he couldn't tell us during the Clinton years, even in his carefully detailed "Starr Report" of September 1998. -- adapted from publisher info
