their assistance and the research staff at the university of west george a special collections and the carl albert center and the library of congress where we've done archival research, as well. so this is part, as i say, a book-length project about the leadership of newt gingrich and what i'm going to present today is the work we've done so far on gingrich in his first three terms in the house of representatives. so we have three general goals on this project and the first is provide a general overview of the kinds of things that gingrich did in congress not just as speaker, but before he was speaker and before he was in leadership. second, we want to delve a little bit into this question of gingrich's contributions to congress and the way that congress works. there are some who have argued that gingrich made major contributions to the house and also contributed to increased partisanship and those other two have argued that it's contextual factors and we can delve into that and provide an answer to that question and third, the model of leadership that can explain the kinds of thin
