In Reactionary Republicanism, Bryan Gervais and Irwin Morris develop the most sophisticated analysis to date for gauging the Tea Party's impact upon the U.S. House of Representatives. They show how the relationship between Trump and the Tea Party has important implications for the trajectory of his administration and conclude with a discussion of these implications and their connection to the future of the Republican Party.
