Summary This is a book about present-day United States senators, who they are, how they behave, and why they behave the way they do. It is not an "inside story" of the Senate, at least not in the lurid, "now it can be told" tradition. It is neither an attack nor a defense of the chamber and its ways. It is merely a description and an explanation. This book is based largely upon interviews with United States senators, Senate staff members, lobbyists, and Washington journalists. - Preface.
Contents Introduction -- The men -- The politicians -- The senators' way of life -- The folkways of the Senate -- Party leadership -- The committees -- Senators and lobbyists -- Senators and reporters -- Senators and their constituents -- Action on the floor -- Appendices.
