Comment: This book has already been well loved by someone else and that love shows. It MIGHT have highlighting, underlining, be missing a dust jacket, or SLIGHT water damage, but over-all itâ?TMs still a good book at a great price! (if it is supposed to contain a CD or access code, that may be missing)

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By D. Milbrandt on May 11, 2009
Format: Paperback
I read this book for a grad class and was pleased at how the text looked at the institution of Congress from a multiplicity of perspectives. The "freshness" of this text is its best selling point. The research and anecdotes are from 3-5 years ago, not 30 to 50. While not necessarily for the armchair political science aficionado, it is a good text for thinkers who want to know how Congress really does work.

This book, now in its 10th edition, is ever evolving. I can imagine eventually owning all ten editions. A brilliant commentary for students and followers of politics.

This book provides complex analysis of congressional behavior. It is only for those who are extremely interested in understanding and researching the United States Congress (i.e., it is an academic's book)

Great value for the price. The book arrived promptly, and it is in great shape. Very little wearing and markings in the book. I plan to buy from this again.
