The crisis of American democracy started long before Trump became president, or a candidate for president.  Our government has been failing for a very long time, and the Senate has been ground zero for that failure.  Partisanship has made the Senate dysfunctional — unable to find common ground on vital issues of the day.  In “Broken,” Ira Shapiro offers an expert’s account of some of the most prominent battles of the past decade and describes what must be done to restore the Senate’s important position as a guardian of democracy against possible threats from authoritarian leadership and a polarized environment.
