When things go mad in the na­tion’s cap­i­tal, it is help­ful to grab hold of some nice, re­fresh­ing his­tory, par­tic­u­larly if it is pre­sented in a bright and classy way. C-SPAN of­fers just such a panacea: “The Se­nate: An En­dur­ing Foun­da­tion of Democ­racy,” a hand­some new book that re­veals the fab­u­lous ar­chi­tec­tural de­tails of the Se­nate cham­ber — or­nate hall­ways, ceil­ing fres­coes, his­toric ma­hogany desks and all. More than 130 color pho­to­graphs show the way.

The book is a C-SPAN Pub­li­ca­tion, a col­lec­tion of some very noteworthy vol­umes au­thored by the likes of C-SPAN founder Brian Lamb and oth­ers. Who knew? Find it all at C-Span.org/about/books.
