Editorial Reviews

Review

"I have greatly enjoyed reading The Laws That Shaped America, a fast-moving narrative, with colorfully drawn settings and nuanced descriptions of major players. Dennis Johnson addresses major themes fundamental to lawmaking and representative democracy while effectively illustrating the inherent frustration, sluggishness, complexity, and unpredictability of the legislative process. He has brilliantly mastered a vast amount of source material with proper tone, balance, and emphasis. I learned a great deal from this book."

Richard Baker, author of The Senate of the United States: A Bicentennial History

 

“Dennis Johnson has produced a masterly account of America’s landmark acts of Congress, which will be of interest to anyone interested in history and politics for years to come. It is both highly readable and exhaustive in its research. I highly recommend this book.”

Robert B. Dove, Parliamentarian Emeritus of the United States Senate
