Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The dysfunctional gridlock of the modern Congress is on display for even the most casual observers. The bad behavior in Congress reflects deep divisions across the political environment including the media and other institutions- even the Supreme Court. In Politics to the Extreme some of the nation's most savvy observers explain and explore how extreme partisan polarization is undermining effective government. Thoughtful and illuminating books like this one are necessary if we are to find our way to the difficult solutions." Richard A. Arenber, Adjunct Professor at Brown University, USA and co-author of Defending the Filibuster
