Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

By chronicling the dysfunction of contemporary American politics through the prism of the Senate and its role, Shapiro has given us important insights into what went wrong and why, and a roadmap to fix at least one vital part of a system gone awry. Norman J. Ornstein, coauthor of One Nation After Trump
