    schema:description ""Richard Cohen's scrupulous political biography of Rostenkowski follows his rise to power from modest origins in the Democratic ward politics of Chicago's Polish northwest side, through his national legislative triumphs, and ultimately to his criminal conviction and imprisonment for abuses of House practice."--BOOK JACKET. "Mr. Cohen's story offers much more than Rostenkowski's personal tragedy; it is a tale of the transformation of American political life. Because he served so many years in Congress (1959-1995), Rostenkowski's career illuminates the changing nature of both the institution and the Democratic party."--Jacket."@en ;

He practiced old-school politics; he passed out political favors liberally; he could be gruff and abrupt. But the route for important legislation ran through Rostenkowski's office."--Jacket." ;
