This book was published by The Center for the Study of the Presidency & Congress, and includes a chapter by Mercatus scholar Jason Fichtner.

In 2000, CSPC developed "Triumphs and Tragedies of the Modern Presidency: 76 Case Studies in Presidential Leadership." This anthology of case studies was written by subject matter experts, and intended to provide the President-elect with lessons from his predecessors’ experiences in a wide array of issues. During the course of 2013, CSPC, with the help of subject matter experts, assembled case studies that focused on Congressional Leadership into "Triumphs & Tragedies of the Modern Congress." The anthology will have four co-editors, James Kitfield who is a Senior Correspondent at the National Journal and CSPC Senior Fellow, Christopher P. Lu who is Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Labor, Norman Ornstein who is a Resident Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and a CSPC Senior fellow, and Max Angerholzer who is the President & CEO at CSPC. "Triumphs & Tragedies of the Modern Congress" is an anthology with 52 Case Studies, its intention is to allow for those interested to learn more about prior Members' experiences in Congress.
