The American Congress (repost)

Steven S. Smith, Jason M. Roberts, Ryan J. Vander Wielen, "The American Congress"
2005 | ISBN 0521856760 | PDF | 459 pages | 11 MB

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. Including the most in-depth discussions of the place of the president, the courts, and interest groups in congressional policy-making available in a text, this text 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.
