About the Book

The word “change” stormed onto the political lexicon in 1992 when Democratic Presidential nominee Bill Clinton aimed to deny George H.W. Bush a second term. Often overlooked, however, is that “change” also caused a ruckus in Congress. Redistricting, a check overdraft scandal that consumed the chamber and overall frustration with the system produced a wild and woolly year that sent 110 House members into retirement or defeat. Departures On The House portrays comprehensive biographies of each of those members.
