About this title


Bisnow, who worked as a congressional aide for ten years, deftly recounts his experiences and discusses the way things work in Congress. No bibliography. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

From Library Journal:

Tracing his political career from a student internship in the Sacramento legislature through stints with Senators Hubert Humphrey (D-Minn.) and John Heinz (R-Pa.), Representative John Anderson (R-Ill.), and Senator Robert Dole (R-Kan.), Bisnow provides an exuberant account of the inner workings of Congress. Bisnow has no ax to grind; instead, this self-described "political junkie" offers an unvarnished yet basically positive view of Washington politics. His book compares favorably with Eric Redman's classic The Dance of Legislation ( LJ 6/1/73), but where Redman's book has a unifying element--the passage of a single bill--Bisnow's moves from event to event. While obviously not meant to replace standard academic works about Congressional staff, such as Michael J. Malbin's Unelected Representatives ( LJ 11/1/80), this is an engaging story of politics which should be of particular interest to college students in American government courses.
