schema:description"This book examines the extent to which they were successful in redirecting policy and reforming the institutions of representative government - and the extent to which those same institutions moderated, and even frustrated, efforts to introduce rapid, radical change. Contrasts are drawn both with the Republican freshmen in the Senate and with the power of the President as manifested in the 1995-96 budget battle."@en
