Editorial Reviews

Review

Winner of the Fenno Prize

"This is a very good read for students of Congress who puzzle over the institution's configuration. . . . An excellent examination of institutional change."--Choice

"If we know anything about the U.S. Congress it is this: Congress is a dynamic, ever-changing institution. . . . Alas, for good reasons our theories of congressional organization tend to the static and our empirical analyses tend to the cross-sectional. Eric Schickler's fine book joins a growing set of efforts to understand how and why Congress changes."--Garry Young, Political Science Quarterly

"This book is essential reading for those interested in internal legislative politics, and an important contribution to the more general literature on American politics."--Keith E. Whittington, Congress and the Presidency

From the Inside Flap

"This is an excellent piece of work, which will be influential. Both rational choice and developmental theorists and congressional scholars will read it. This book will be required reading for all Americanists in political science. It should win several prizes for its thoughtfulness, appropriateness, and careful, knowledgeable use of history."--David Brady, Stanford University

"This is an ambitious piece of work on an important topic. I am impressed with the exhaustive search for sources and the splendid, integrated account of so much of Congress's institutional development. It is a remarkable achievement."--Steven S. Smith, University of Minnesota

--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a must read for Congressional scholars. Shickler's book is groundbreaking, a bit long, but very helpful both in in terms of understanding Congress, and for helping prepare for Comprehensive or Preliminary Exams.
