about this book

The Tax Reform Act of 1986 was the single most sweeping change in the history of America's income tax. It was also the best political and economic story of its time. Here, two Wall Street Journal reporters provide the first complete picture of how this tax revolution went from an improbable dream to a widely hailed reality.

"Showdown is a classic of its genre...It is illuminating and systematic enough to become a staple in political science courses."
--The Washington Post Book World
