Editorial Reviews


"A compelling and parsimonious model of congressional roll call voting... The authors set forth a research agenda that will keep political scientists, economists, and historians engaged for years to come."

Journal of Politics

"This book deserves a wide readership... [I]t provides a fascinating tour through political history and an insightful exploration into how political institutions affect outcomes."

Journal of Economic Literature

"This book is a very important analysis of ideology and probably the most significant public choice analysis of Congress. [I]t will be impossible for scholars studying Congress to proceed without considering the Poole and Rosenthal results."
