Reviews
This book is an excellent and thoughtful examination of the role of the minority party in the House. With absolutely sound scholarship, Matthew Green makes entertaining and intriguing use of existing literature on Congress, as well as the literature on campaigns, elections, parties, and the media. - William F. Connelly Jr., author of James Madison Rules America--William Connelly
"Most studies of legislative parties focus, understandably, on the majority, which has most of the power to shape the chamber and its outcomes. Green reminds us that this is only part of the story, and that history is occasionally determined by the strength and creativity of the party with fewer seats." - Seth Masket, author of No Middle Ground: How Informal Party Organizations Control Nominations and Polarize Legislatures --Seth Masket
