Summary

The American Legislative Process: Congress and the States is an exhaustive portrayal and analysis of this critical branch of American government at both the federal and state levels. Revised in response to recent changes in the political scene, the ninth edition of this classic text is engaging, intriguing, and illuminating. Topics expanded upon or added include congressional rules changes and reorganization, changing levels of public support for the institution, the House speakership, and the leverage of special interest groups. Analysis in each chapter moves between federal and state entities and illustrates how legislative institutions and practices are shaped to reflect the interests and preferences of the legislators themselves.
