COMBAT: Twelve Years in the U.S. Senate.

by Rudman, Warren B

Condition: As New/Fine

New York, NY, U.S.A.: Random House, Inc., 1996. First Edition, First Printing 1st Printing. Hardcover. As New/Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. One of the most respected and popular senators of recent times shows from the inside how the Senate works--and why it often doesn't work. Admired by his colleagues for his bluntness, decency and courage, Rudman gives a candid account of four historic senate actions in which he played a central role: the Gramm-Rudman Act, the audacious 1985 attempt to force a balanced budget on an unwilling Congress and President; the 'Keating Five' Ethics Committee hearings; the Iran-Contra investigation, Rudman's no-holds-barred account of the Reagan administration's biggest scandal; and the appointment of his colleague and close friend David Suter to the Supreme Court. As new, in fine, mylar-protected dust jacket. NFBS1
