Filibusters are often covered by the news media, but what is their purpose? How long can they last, and what are the rules that must be followed during a filibuster? Readers discover the answers to these and other common questions about this unique part of American politics as they explore some of the most famous filibusters in U.S. history, including recent filibusters by Wendy Davis and Nancy Pelosi. Sidebars encourage readers to become more active citizens, and discussion questions allow young people to examine their own opinions about the American political process.
