The Dance of Legislation is a description of the American legislative process. Eric Redman draws on his two years as a member of Senator Warren Magnuson's staff to trace the drafting and passing of the National Health Service Bill (s.4106) with all the maneuvers, plots, counterplots, frustrations, triumphs, work, and dedication involved. He draws a picture of the bureaucratic infighting, political prerogatives, and Congressional courtesies necessary to make something happen on Capitol Hill. In a new Postscript, he reflects on how that process has, and has not, changed in the thirty years since the book was first published.

Book Description:

A classic description of the legislative process, tracing the drafting and passing of a single piece of legislation with all the maneuvering, frustrations, and triumphs involved.

From the Inside Flap:

"What Redman has written about the evolution of a health bill could be written about comparable constellations of personalities and pressures affecting an education or a housing or farm or tax bill. But few writers have actually produced a book that has such a useful blend of information, self-deprecatory humor, and keen rendering of the distinctive atmosphere of Congress." (New York Times Book Review)
