Nova Publishers, 2001 - 212 sidor
There is no doubt that the House of Representatives exists and functions in the United States. The fact that few understand how it does exist and function is the subject of this new book. The chapters in this book detail the sometimes arcane procedures and processes of this grunt-type chamber. These are the folks who do the heavy lifting of lawmaking. The Senate may be considered august, especially to its own members, but it is the House which forms the backbone of American democracy at the federal level.
