-Harry Reid (D-Nevada), Senate Majority Leader
"The only way our system functions is when members of both parties check their partisan hats at the door and work together on behalf of the nation. No one understands the Senate better than Ross Baker. His book provides valuable insight to understand how the Senate has changed and what's needed to fix it."
-Senator Mark R. Warner (D-Virginia)
"This book offers everything one expects from Ross Baker: pithy insight, deep institutional knowledge, and unique access to the Senate. The writing is accessible and downright entertaining. Delving beneath the surface of roll-call votes, readers will come away with a more complete understanding of how and when bipartisanship shapes contemporary legislation, as well as a more nuanced appreciation of the value of bipartisanship itself."
-Frances E. Lee, University of Maryland
"Ross Baker-a keen observer of the U.S. Senate-has peeled back the layers of the legislative process to reveal whether bipartisanship still has a chance in an era of polarized politics."
-Donald A. Ritchie, author of The U.S. Congress: A Very Short Introduction
"Fun to read and instructive, not only as an examination of bipartisanship in the Senate but as a guide to how the Senate actually works. . . .The book is particularly useful in illustrating the competing pressures on Senators--balancing electoral, party, and policy objectives in navigating particular issues."
-Judith Feder, Georgetown University
