Description - America's Congress by David R. Mayhew
To understand American politics and government, we need to recognize that members of Congress are more than agents of societal interests and preferences - they also act with some autonomy and consequence in the public sphere. In this study, a distinguished political scientist examines the actions of members of Congress throughout American history, assessing their patterns and importance and their role in the US system of separation of powers.
