‘Filibustering’ Is Today’s Free eBook Of The Day

Filibustering: A Political History of Obstruction in the House and Senate by Gregory Koger is today’s free eBook of the Day.

Learn the history of how the Sentate can be clogged for weeks on end. Here is more about the book: “In the modern Congress, perhaps the highest hurdle for bills and nominations is gaining the sixty votes necessary to shut off a filibuster in the Senate. But this wasn’t always the case. Koger traces the lively history of filibustering, explains why obstruction has been institutionalized in the Senate over the last fifty years, and shows how this transformation affects politics and policymaking.”

The University of Chicago has the eBook available for free this month.
