About this title


An insider's analysis of why today's Senate doesn't work that examines the human motives and intricate behaviors of ritual and maneuver that determine what the Senate can and can't accomplish

From Library Journal:

Reedy ( The Twilight of the Presidency ) here offers his views on the U.S. Senate. The book is both a commentary on the inner workings of the Senatean institution whose purpose and method, according to Reedy, are largely misunderstood by most citizensand a historical analysis of its achievements during the 1950s, a period which stands as one of the most effective and productive eras in its history. Since Reedy served as staff director of the Senate's Democratic Policy Committee during those years he offers a unique perspective on both topics. The book's final chapter provides a comparison of the 1950s with the current political scene. Overall, a well-written and insightful discussion which will be of interest to students of political science and history as well as informed observers of the contemporary scene. Highly recommended.
