Description

Reviews

Baker's The Senate of the United States provides a comprehensive account of the personalities and issues that for nearly two centuries have shaped "The World's Greatest Deliberative Body." It offers a narrative survey of the Senate's development from its constitutional origins through the late 1980s and is enriched with first-person observations from national figures ranging from James Madison to Robert C. Byrd.

"An excellent account of the issues and personalities that have dominated the Senate during its first two hundred years." -- Stephen E. Massengill, Div. of Archives and History, The North Carolina Historical Review.

"This book succeeds admirably in illustrating the importance of the legislature in the development of the U.S. and its flexibility in adapting to the changing needs of the nation...serves as an excellent and readable introduction to the Congress of the U.S. for both students and the general public." -- Virginia Haughton-Bellows, The Register of the Kentucky Historical Society, 1988.
