Richard A. Baker - The American Senate: An Insider's History ♦
Saturday, July 27, 2013 at 6:00 pm
Neil MacNeil, one of Washington Week’s founders, began covering the Senate in 1949. When he passed away in 2008, he had nearly completed this magisterial chronicle of the institution he knew so well. At that point, the baton was passed to the Senate’s official historian, Richard A. Baker (who served in that capacity from 1975 to his retirement in 2009). Together, these veterans of the Washington political scene have compiled a thorough and revelatory picture of the Senate from the Revolutionary era to the present.
