The House: The History of the House of Representatives : The United States House of Representatives is regarded by many as the finest deliberative body in existence. Throughout America's history, the House has played a central role in shaping the nation's destiny. In our own time the impeachment hearings of President Clinton and the rise and fall of New Gingrich revealed, quite starkly, just how vital the House's constitutional powers remain. In this incomparable single-volume history, distinguished historian Robert V. Remini traces the development of this quintessential American institution from a struggling, nascent body to the venerable powerhouse it has become since America's rise on the world stage.
