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 this incomparable singlevolume history, distinguished historian Robert V. Remini traces the development of this quintessential American institution from a contentious, nascent body to the venerable, if troubled, institution it has become since America's rise on the world stage.

Robert V. Remini, professor emeritus of history & the humanities at the University of Illinois at Chicago, won the National Book Award for his three-volume biography of Andrew Jackson. He is the author of numerous books on American history, including "The Battle of New Orleans" & biographies of Henry Clay & Daniel Webster.
