CHOICE Review

For many scholars, trying to understand what Congress is doing and why it is doing it is a challenge. It is essential to understand the combined impact of political parties, organization, and the role and use of procedure. This volume provides an accessible and insightful set of essays that explain how political parties, institutional organization, and procedures such as roll call votes, the decline of deliberation in the Senate, the use of motions, and the filibuster in the Senate affect the functioning of Congress. The collection of essays, edited by Straus (analyst, Congressional Research Service, Library of Congress), are organized into four sections: "Leadership," which includes a single essay; "The House of Representatives"; "Senate"; and "Legislative Reconciliation between the Chambers," which includes an essay about health care reform in the 111th Congress. The chapters are all clearly written and focus on important real-world examples. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Undergraduate collections. J. M. Stonecash Syracuse University
