KIRKUS REVIEW

Volume I is a detailed record of the origin, history, development and machinery of the Senate, an important factual basis for Volume II, in which the Senate and foreign relations come in for exhaustive treatment, with study of the methods, the departures therefrom, and the contributions made over the years. It goes on then to the question of appointments, ratifications, rejections, civil service problems, concern in Supreme Court and Cabinet appointments, special commissions and foreign service. Next -- removals from office and impeachments, the historical background and the changing policy. Finally, the privileges, payment and perquisites of the senatorial body. The Senate chambers and changing customs. The President and the Senate. The House and the Senate. Provocative and timely -- for reference rather than reading.
