Congress and Its Members - 13th edition

Congress and Its Members (ISBN10: 1608716422; ISBN13: 9781608716425)
ISBN13: 978-1608716425
ISBN10: 1608716422

Summary: Incorporating the crucial updates and new research you expect, the thirteenth edition of Congress and Its Members remains a trusted resource for introducing students to the legislative branch. As thousands of undergraduates have learned, focusing on Congress as not only a legislative body, but also as a group of reelection-minded politicians, is an extraordinarily effective way to understand the institution and the law-making process. In addition to featuring new examples and cases d
rawn from recent congressional politics-including the battles over health care reform, financial regulations, economic stimulus, fiscal management, and tax policy-the authors also integrate new scholarship on representation, congressional elections, lobbying influence, and the relationship between Congress and the Court. The thirteenth edition also features analysis of:

'' the 2010 congressional campaigns and elections;
'' party and leadership changes for the 112th Congress;
'' executive-legislative relations under President Obama;
'' new procedures in the House and Senate;
'' budgeting in an era of huge de#x1;cits;
'' the heightened importance of lobbyists in legislative policymaking;
'' public attitudes about Congress as dysfunctional, even corrupt; and
'' the courts and their impact on the interpretation of congressional statutes, the scope of congressional power, and the reach of statutory campaign #x1;nance regulations.
