Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

While the Congress literature of the 1970s and 1980s led to the dominant impression that all politics is local, in recent years legislative behavior has pointed in more national directions. Dilemmas of Representation comprehensively examines the multifaceted activities of several legislators from New York, one the country's most diverse states. Legislators still include strong local components in their home styles, but a variety of national factors now contribute notably to an understanding of local politics. This book encourages the reader to think more about the appropriate balance of local and national emphasis in legislator home styles, and also the advantages and disadvantages of the contrasting representational styles used by some contemporary representatives.

"The changes in representational processes in today's highly partisan era require us to rethink much of the conventional wisdom about American political institutions. Friedman weaves this focus throughout the book and addresses the variation that exists in the way members of Congress adjust to these changes." -- Bruce I. Oppenheimer, Vanderbilt University
