Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Not just for policy wonks, this is a book every responsible citizen should own. The Almanac of American Politics contains more up-to-date information about the American political process than any other publication, including profiles and voting records of all 535 members of Congress and the governors of every state. You'll also find informative essays about past political history and future trends across the United States, as well as maps of voting districts, census statistics, and more. (Just in case the listings get you inspired, the almanac provides contact information for all the politicians profiled, including postal and e-mail addresses.) The Almanac of American Politics provides all the information anyone needs to get involved in the political process. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

Day after day and year after year, the most consulted, respected, and influential book in Washington.

"That Washington bible, packed with detail about national and state politics...is a legendary stand-by."

-- The Economist

"The single best reference there is for Congress and Washington specifically and the country generally."

-- Jim Lehrer, The News Hour

"Indispensable...If politics is the art of the possible, this compendium of statistics and information has gone as far as humanly possible."

-- The Washington Post

"Fun reading...The Almanac of American Politics knows every detail of this country's political landscape and in the process includes enough odd facts to satisfy any trivia buff."

-- Bryant Gumbel

"Michael Barone is to politics what statistician-writer Bill James is to baseball, a mix of historian, social observer, and numbers cruncher who illuminates his subject with perspective and a touch of irreverence."

-- Chicago Tribune

My 1996 edition is so dog-eared, highlighted, and noted that you can tell it's one of my most common reference tools. I use it when politicians are on talk shows, to give me an idea of where they are coming from. It usually proves there is a huge media imbalance of views on network television, so I've switched to C-Span. Seeing a voting record clues me in on where a Congressman is likely to stand on an issue, before he opens his mouth. I use it for background information, and to send faxes and letters. I use it to keep track of my own Congressmen and to find others who have voted the way I would vote, to contact, if an important issue is pending for a vote. It's only big handicap is a lack of E-Mail addresses. I could do much more with it, if I had them. I highly recommend this book and am saving for an updated version.
