My book project examines congressional investigations from the very beginning of the Republic to the present, with reference to both investigations of the executive branch as well as other subjects (such as Communist groups, labor shortages, and election procedures). It employs quantitative methods and archival research to look at investigations’ emergence and success. Some other work has been published in Political Research Quarterly, the Hastings Law Review, and a number of edited volumes.
