Triumphs and Tragedies of the Modern Congress

In 2000, CSPC developed Triumphs and Tragedies of the Modern Presidency: 76 Case Studies in Presidential Leadership. This anthology of case studies was written by subject matter experts, and intended to provide the President-elect with lessons from his predecessors’ experiences in a wide array of issues. During the course of 2013, CSPC, with the help of subject matter experts, assembled case studies that focused on Congressional Leadership into Triumphs & Tragedies of the Modern Congress. The anthology had four co-editors, James Kitfield who is a Senior Correspondent at the National Journal and CSPC Senior Fellow, Christopher P. Lu who is the former Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Labor, Norman Ornstein who is a Resident Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and a CSPC Senior Fellow, and Max Angerholzer who was the President & CEO at CSPC. Triumphs & Tragedies of the Modern Congress is an anthology with 52 Case Studies, its intention is to allow current and incoming Members to learn from their predecessors’ experiences.
