It's Even Worse Than It Looks: How the American Constitutional System Collided with the New Politics of Extremism by Thomas E Mann
It's Even Worse Than It Looks: How the American Constitutional System Collided with the New Politics of Extremism

D Randall Spydell, January 1, 2013

This book is an easy, but pointed read about the development of the acrimony and partisanship in the government of the USA. Not a pundit rambling on about his or her inclinations and observations, but a well-assembled story with data of what the Congress did, when they did it, and how it's evolved into the dysfunctional monster it is today. And not just a succinct history of how we got where we are today, but Part II includes some well-considered suggestions and strategies for how to get out of the mess we're in. I strongly agree with Tom Daschle's statement on the back of the dust jacket, "If every member of Congress would read just one book on the subject, my wish is that it would be this book." I recommend that every sentient and voting American also read this book before voting in the next election.
