Summary
"This book explains how and why obstruction has been institutionalized in the U.S. Senate over the last fifty years, and how this transformation affects politics and policymaking. Gregory Koger also traces the lively history of filibustering in the U.S. House during the nineteenth century and measures the effects of filibustering- bills killed, compromises struck, and new issues raised by obstruction."--[book cover]
