The Dynamics of Congress

Written in clear lucid prose and illustrated with frequent diagrams, this book introduces both the theory and reality of how a law is made. Included are discussions on committee operations, party leadership and hierarchy, caucuses, and the role of lobbyists. To understand the legislative process is to understand the nature of the U.S. Congress. It is the only democratically elected national assembly in the world that both represents and legislates. These two hats worn by senators and representatives must be kept in mind when the outside observer offers the criticism that ?nothing ever gets done on Capitol Hill.? The Dynamics of Congress offers extensive information on congressional committees, staff, the President?s involvement in the legislative process and on the budget process.
