Throughout America's history, the House has played a central role in shaping the nation's destiny. In this incomparable single-volume history, distinguished historian Robert V. Remini traces the institution from a struggling, nascent body to the venerable powerhouse it has become since America's rise on the world stage. The essential drama of democracy—the struggle between principle and pragmatism—is showcased throughout the book, and through it the history of America's successful experiment with democracy unfurls.
Robert V. Remini is professor of history emeritus and research professor of humanities emeritus at the University of Illinois at Chicago and historian of the United States House of Representatives. He is the winner of the National Book Award for the third volume of his study of Andrew Jackson, and he lives in Wilmette, Illinois.
“[T]he very best volume of its kind thus far presented to the vast constituency of the House.”
On Daniel Webster: the Man and His Times:“A splendid addition to [Remini’s] highly regarded books”
On Andrew Jackson and his Indian Wars: “An exuberant history in the great storytelling tradition.”
