Kill Switch: The Rise of the Modern Senate and the Crippling of American Democracy
By Adam Jentleson
The author, who served as a senior aide to the former
Senate majority leader Harry Reid, has written an
impeccably timed book about the modern Senate.
Focusing on the filibuster, Jentleson explains how “the
world’s greatest deliberative body” has come to carry out
its work without much greatness or even deliberation,
serving instead as a place where ambitious legislation
goes to die.
