"This original and new study of senates in small powers across the North Atlantic shows that the establishment and reform of these upper legislative houses have followed remarkably parallel trajectories. Senate reforms emerged in the wake of deep political crises within the Atlantic World, and were influenced by the comparatively weak positions of small powers. Reformers responded to crises and constantly looked beyond borders and oceans for inspiration to keep their senates relevant"-- Provided by publisher
