Summary

Naked Emperors explains in sharp detail how the historic congressional election of 1994 utterly failed to live up to the promise of the Republican Revolution and its Contract for America. The book provides vivid insights into how a culture of corruption festers in Washington, and lays out a blueprint for how normal citizens can make government accountable even in the face of entrenched special interests.
