Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
A must for all public policy analysts seeking to understand the importance of symbolic/proxy representation of Congress as the foundation upon which the democratic system is built.

An approach to properly categorize the role of party politics in achieving political success and hoping to maintain the degree of objectivity that maintains an effective Congress means knowing how trust is achieved, sustained, and challenged - as a part of the political representation afforded to American citizens in a spirit of freedom and self governance.
