Rate this:
The Senate is becoming more like the House of Representatives in its increasing levels of partisanship and ideology. A transformation of the institution appears to be underfoot, posing questions about the Senate's role as the chamber in which cool judgement prevails. This book discusses and analyzes the changes in Senate life including rules and procedures, leadership and party organization, executive and Senate relations, debate and deliberation, and media spotlight. Then there is a re-examination of Senate efficacy, legitamacy and appropriateness as an aristocratic chamber in an increasingly democratic system of government.
