Summary
"The American Congress provides the most insightful, up-to-date treatment of congressional politics available in an undergraduate text. Informed by the authors' Capitol Hill experience and nationally recognized scholarship, The American Congress presents a crisp introduction to all major features of Congress: its party and committee systems, leadership, and voting and floor activity. The text has the most in-depth discussions of the place of the president, the courts, and interest groups in congressional policy making available in book form. The text also blends an emphasis on recent developments in congressional politics with a clear discussion of the rules of the game, the history of key features of Congress, and stories from recent Congresses that bring politics to life. No other text weaves real-life examples into the discussion of the important ideas of recent political science research, The book also includes the most comprehensive list of suggested readings and Internet resources on Congress available today."--Jacket
