The second book in the Fundamentals of American Government civics series explores the inner workings of this vital part of the legislative branch. From its electoral process to voting procedure, from historic beginnings to modern issues, there is no area of this governmental body left unrevealed. Told from an insider's perspective, by former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle and co-written by journalist and novelist Charles Robbins, this compelling and digestible book carefully examines and explains exactly how the Senate operates. Peppered with inside insights from Senate life, this is both an entertaining read as well as a quick guide for any citizen interested in a concise yet authoritative exploration of the "upper house."--From publisher description

It was a challenge to read this book. But, if one is willing to pursue a career in the U.S. Senate, this would perhaps be a starting point as far as research is concerned. However, it was informative. Plus, reading books about the government are not easy to read.
