From the Publisher"A plain-spoken examination of a serious problem in American representative democracy, highly recommended - especially for anyone serving or considering serving in a public office."
Midwest Book Review
"Ahuja….reviews the extensive literature, considers the evidence demonstrating Congress's poor performance and incivility, and offers six causes….The author provides ample quantitative and qualitative evidence that documents the factors discussed, and he concludes with a series of recommendations to improve the institution….This is a concise and informative book, and a valuable addition for all libraries whose holdings in this subject area are limited."
"Ahuja (Youngstown State Univ.) explores the rise of partisanship and incivility in the two houses of the US Congress….The book provides a doleful record of bad behavior. Recommended."
