About the Author:

Timothy J. Barnett is assistant professor of political science and public administration at Jacksonville State University. He is a former president of the Alabama Political Science Association.

Review:

Overall, Barnett's Legislative Learning is a well done theoretical volume that attempts to understand the Republican Freshman Class of 1994 through competing interpretations of principle-agent analysis and member goal and ambition theories. -Gregory R. Thorson. American Political Science Review. Vol.96, No.1.
I found it fascinating to read Dr. Barnett's careful and scholarly analysis of the 104th Congress, which I experienced first hand in all its struggle and passion. The depth of his research is astounding, and his conclusions ring true.
Tony Blankley, Press Secretary to the Speaker of the House, 104th Congress

An excellent, engaging and prodigiously researched study of the efforts - sometimes successful, often not - of the 1994 House Republican freshmen, to cope with such ingredients of legislative learning as political principle, career ambition, class cohesion, party organization, and institutional policy making.
Richard F. Fenno Jr.- Distinguished University Professor, University of Rochester
