About the Author:

Martin B. Gold is a partner in Covington & Burling's Washington office and is co-chair of the firm's Legislative Practice Group. Gold is one of the country's leading experts on congressional procedures, and for many years has been on the faculty of Congressional Quarterly. He was recognized by The Washingtonian as 'One of the Top 50 Lobbyists' in DC.

Review:

This book will be invaluable to any student of the Senate. (Robert Dove, Parliamentarian Emeritus, United States Senate)

As Mr. Gold writes, the U.S. Senate is a twenty-first-century body operating with a core of eighteenth century rules -- a fact that makes following the Senate’s lawmaking process both frustrating and fascinating. Senate Procedure and Practice ably explains this process and its consequences. No one explains it better or with more credibility than Martin Gold. (Kent Conrad, former U.S. Senator from North Dakota)

Mr. Gold’s knowledge of and respect for the U.S. Senate shine through in this overview of the institution and its rules, procedures, and traditions. Senate Procedure and Practice gives the reader a grasp of real-world application of Senate process to the issues before Congress. (Jon Kyl, former U.S. Senator from Arizona)

Mr. Gold’s knowledge of and respect for the U.S. Senate shine through in this overview of the institution and its rules, procedures, and traditions. Senate Procedure and Practice gives the reader a grasp of real-world application of Senate process to the issues before Congress. (Dennis DeConcini, former U.S. Senator from Arizona)

The Senate’s rules, precedents, and processes admirably serve the Framers’ vision for the operation of the Upper Chamber within the Constitution’s architecture. Martin Gold is the gold standard in describing it all in a way that will greatly assist Members and staffs, and anyone else, who needs to understand how and why the Senate functions as it does. (Gordon H. Smith, former U.S. Senator from Oregon)
