"A simply splendid book that will benefit student learners and their teachers. John Quincy Adams and the Gag Rule, 18351850, is lucid, fast-paced, clever, and richly researched."

"Hoffer provides a concise, readable account of one of the pivotal disputes in the ongoing struggle over the future of slavery in the United States. Anyone who is interested in the politics of the antebellum era will profit from reading this book."

"As the United States watches a dysfunctional congressional majority prevent serious debate over serious issues, Peter Hoffer reminds us how Congress in the 1830s and 1840s refused to face its responsibilities in dealing with the nation's most pressing issue, by preventing meaningful debate over slavery, and ignored the complaints of literally millions of Americans who opposed human bondage. This is a history book that should be read by every member of Congress."
