The Contemporary Congress offers a clear and concise introduction to legislative processes. Perfect as a brief core or supplementary text for undergraduate courses, the Sixth Edition constructs a comprehensive portrait of the U.S. Congress, from defining congressional structures and procedures to outlining the process of elections and analyzing presidential-congressional relations. With updated coverage of the most recent elections, Loomis and Schiller remain committed to providing a text that integrates academic studies—both modern and classic—with the actual politics of Capitol Hill. Through the use of engaging examples in every chapter, The Contemporary Congress provides the most succinct and readable analysis of the politics behind the policy decisions made every day on the House and Senate floors.
