Overview

The elections of 1998 bear out the thesis of this book: so far, the Republicans in Congress are operating more like an old minority party than the new majority party they've become. Still, Congress has changed under Republican leadership and the Republicans have changed, too. This volume of original essays by leading congressional scholars explores the impact of the Republican majority on Congress with attention to the history of the institution and party characteristics present and future. For students and scholars alike, the new majority of an old minority provides a laboratory for political analysis that demonstrates lasting effects. As Republicans learn to govern, the country will no doubt learn something, too.

Richard F. Fenno
A dozen of the country’s leading legislative scholars have collaborated here to examine and explain four historic, roller-coaster years of the U.S. Congress under Republican rule. For an up-to-date analysis of how the new majority and the old institution have affected one another, and why, this stimulating and original volume must be read and savored.

Nine essays explore the impact of the 1997 election of a new Republican majority upon the institution of the U.S. Congress. Dating from just before the launching of the inquiry regarding the impeachment of President Clinton, the authors discuss such topics as the leadership style of Newt Gingrich, change and continuity in congressional committees, Republican roles in Budget Reform, and the changing nature of factionalism in the House Republican Party.
