With the People s Consent explores Howard Baker s ability to lead the United States Senate at a time when it was divided by partisanship and ideology. This book features a quantitative analysis of Senate leadership through roll call analysis, an evaluation of the advantages and difficulties in roll call data, and a discussion of data used to evaluate Baker s leadership in the 95th to 98th Congress. With the People s Consent addresses how the current instability of the Senate could be improved by looking toward Baker s own success during a tumultuous time."
