Description

Reviews

From the Congressman who killed a waiter because of bad service to the most serious decisions on national policy, Currie's book offers a comprehensive and eminently readable account of two hundred years of the House of Representatives. The strength of Currie's book is its style: appealing to the general public, while at the same time offering a solid, factual history for the student and scholar. This is by far the best history of the House, offering in one volume a narrative study supplemented by a judicious selection of documents from the original sources.

 "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, Summer 1988.
