It's even worse than it looks : how the American constitutional system collided with the new politics of extremism by Thomas E Mann( Book )

17 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hyperpartisanship has gridlocked the American government. Congress's approval ratings are at record lows, and both Democrats and Republicans are disgusted by the government's inability to get anything done. Congressional scholars Thomas E. Mann and Norman J. Ornstein present a grim picture of how party polarization and tribal politics have led Congress -- and the United States -- to the brink of institutional failure. In this revised edition, the authors bring their book up-to-date in a political environment that is more divided than ever. The underlying dynamics of the situation -- extremist Republicans holding government hostage to their own ideological, anti-government beliefs -- have only gotten worse, further bolstering their argument that Republicans are not merely ideologically different from Democrats, but engaged in a unique form of politics that undermines the system itself
The broken branch : how Congress is failing America and how to get it back on track by Thomas E Mann( Book )

25 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 1,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Congress is the first branch of government in the American system, write Thomas E. Mann and Norman J. Ornstein, but now it is a broken branch, damaged by partisan bickering and internal rancor. The Broken Branch offers both a diagnosis of the cause of Congressional decline and a much-needed blueprint for change, from two experts who understand politics and revere our institutions, but believe that Congress has become deeply dysfunctional."--Jacket

"The author explains how Republicans have taken control of both houses of Congress and experienced a remarkable resurgence at the state level.
