Independent Counsel: Process and Policy examines the Office of the Independent Counsel, established by the Ethics in Government Act of 1978. It discusses the history of the Act, its implementation, and its application. Although there is a need for independent investigation of high-level government officials, the Act suffers from major defects which damage its credibility in accomplishing the goals Congress set with its passage. Independent Counsel: Process and Policy suggests changes to the Act which will increase the efficiency and fairness of the office, and encourage efforts to eradicate the public's perception of the independent counsel as a renegade.
