Summary

The only text published with each new Congress, THE CONTEMPORARY CONGRESS is a concise, yet comprehensive and analytical text that can be used as a supplement, but covers all the foundations of a course on Congress. From the underlying theory of representative democracy and the process of elections to committee dynamics and the legislative process on the House and Senate floor to the relationship between Congress and the Presidency under unified and divided party government, THE CONTEMPORARY CONGRESS offers students a succinct and comprehensive view into the rules, politics, and party strategy that determine the policy decisions made every day in the U.S. Congress , which is especially important in the contemporary era of strong Republican Party government.
