|Description||This detailed look at the Republicans elected to Congress in 1994 is the most revealing book available on the GOP-controlled Congress. Journalist Linda Killian describes how Newt Gingrich's army of upstarts fought to pass the Contract with America, dueled with President Clinton over a government shutdown, and toiled to win reelection in 1996. Although some readers are bound to consider The Freshmen too long, political junkies will find themselves devouring its behind-the-scenes account of how Congress and Washington really operate.|
