Weissman (Senior Governance Advisor, ARD Inc.) offers a behind-the- scenes look at decision making in Washington, focusing on Congress' role in foreign policy. He portrays the workings of a "culture of deference" to the president and to special interests in the Carter, Reagan, Bush, and Clinton administrations, and analyzes US policy regarding countries including El Salvador, Angola, and Somalia, suggesting how Congress and the public might revive democratic leadership in foreign affairs.
