Until 1994, Republicans had not held a majority of seats in the U.S. House since 1954, more than twice the time that either party has dwelt in the minority throughout congressional history. This is the first book-length comprehensive analysis since 1970 of the causes and consequences, and possible cures for the House Republicans' "permanent minority" status. Written in a nontechnical style, Congress' Permanent Minority? will be of great interest to scholars, students, and the political community.

About the Author:

William F. Connelly, Jr. is associate professor in the Department of Politics at Washington and Lee University.

John J. Pitney, Jr. is assistant professor of government at Claremont McKenna College.

Review:

Anyone who wants to understand Congress should learn about the House Republicans. Anyone who wants to learn about the House Republicans should read this important book. (Dick Cheney, former Secretary of Defense)

William Connelly and John Pitney have produced an authoritative study of one of the most neglected, while at the same time potentially crucial, groups in American politics: the House Republicans. (A James Reichley, Senior Fellow; Georgetown University; author of The Life of the Parties)

This is the best political science 'insiders' look at the House Republicans in decades―based on wide-ranging interviews that highlight the textures and variations among the all-too-often caricatured minority. . . . this is a book worth recommending to readers as varied as the subscribers to Roll Call and the American Political Science Review. (Michael J. Malbin)

Connelly and Pitney have produced a lively, informative and much-needed study of the minority party in the House. I recommend it highly to anyone who wants to understand the contemporary House of Representatives. (Barbara Sinclair, professor of political science, University of California, Los Angeles)

This will be the leading work on a long-neglected subject. Sprightly and smart, it presents a wealth of fascinating new information about the House's minority side. (David R. Mayhew, Sterling Professor of political science, Yale University)

An essential resource for anyone interested in understanding the dynamics of congressional parties or the legislative process itself. (Library Journal)

Written just before the Republican sweep in November, the book nevertheless gives the reader a real feel for where the Republicans are coming from―and offers some markers for judging whether they will behave differently now that they are in the majority. (The New York Times)

Two elements stand out in Connelly and Pitney's account. The first is their very real skill as storytellers . . . and how little the authors or most of the Republican members they interviewed expected the revolution of 1994 . . . a plausible strategy . . . (Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Sciences)

The book identifies an important research area, raises a large number of questions that are of interest to congressional scholars, contains a wealth of qualitative data, and is readily accessible . . . of value to a wide readership . . . (American Political Science Review)
