Abstract

Sean M. Theriault aims to document the U.S. Senate’s demise over the last 30 years by showing how one group of senators has been at the forefront of this transformation: the “Gingrich Senators” They are more conservative, more likely to engage in tactics that obstruct the legislative process, and more likely to oppose Democratic presidents than even their fellow other Republicans. Richard Armstrong recommends the read to those interested in US politics and governance.
