City of Rivals: Restoring the Glorious Mess of American Democracy (Paperback)
An essential book that operates as a diagnosis of Congress's failures and a blueprint for its, and America's, future, from the president of The Bipartisan Council. The first truly bipartisan book about the partisan gridlock that has paralyzed our government and how the answer lies in channelling and harnessing the partisanship, not spinning in its mud. Unlike so many "Washington is Broken" books, it offers a real way forward.
Jason Grumet is the founder and president of the Bipartisan Policy Center, which promotes practical solutions to the country's public policy challenges. He previously directed the National Commission on Energy Policy and is respected on both sides of the aisle for his innovative approach to improving government effectiveness. He has a BA from Brown University and a JD from Harvard University.
