About this product
- DescriptionExplains how the Senate managed to satisfy its lawmaking role during the 19th and early 20th century, when it lacked essential formal rules for governing debate. This book argues that in a system where filibusters played out as wars of attrition, the threat of rule changes prevented the institution from devolving into parliamentary chaos.
