  • The Not-So-Special Interestsby Matt Grossmann

    Stanford University Press 2012; US$ 24.95

    "Lobbyist" tends to be used as a dirty word in politics. Indeed, during the 2008 presidential primary campaign, Hillary Clinton was derided for even suggesting that some lobbyists represent "real Americans." But although many popular commentators position interest groups as representatives of special?not "public"?interests, much organized advocacy... more...

  • Lobbying and Policy Changeby Frank R. Baumgartner; Jeffrey M. Berry; Marie Hojnacki; Beth L. Leech; David C. Kimball

    University of Chicago Press 2009; US$ 24.00

    During the 2008 election season, politicians from both sides of the aisle promised to rid government of lobbyists’ undue influence. For the authors of Lobbying and Policy Change , the most extensive study ever done on the topic, these promises ring hollow—not because politicians fail to keep them but because lobbies are far less influential... more...

  • Parties and Leaders in the Postreform Houseby David W. Rohde

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 27.50

    Since the Second World War, congressional parties have been characterized as declining in strength and influence. Research has generally attributed this decline to policy conflicts within parties, to growing electoral independence of members, and to the impact of the congressional reforms of the 1970s. Yet the 1980s witnessed a strong resurgence of... more...

  • Turf Warsby David C. King

    University of Chicago Press 2008; US$ 25.00

    For most bills in American legislatures, the issue of turf—or which committee has jurisdiction over a bill—can make all the difference. Turf governs the flow and fate of all legislation. In this innovative study, David C. King explains how jurisdictional areas for committees are created and changed in Congress. Political scientists have... more...

  • Why Not Parties?by Nathan W. Monroe; Jason M. Roberts; David W. Rohde

    University of Chicago Press 2009; US$ 27.50

    Recent research on the U.S. House of Representatives largely focuses on the effects of partisanship, but the strikingly less frequent studies of the Senate still tend to treat parties as secondary considerations in a chamber that gives its members far more individual leverage than congressmen have. In response to the recent increase in senatorial... more...

  • Restorationby George F. Will

    Free Press 2010; Not Available

    Biblical Christianity was originally a sect of Judaism that believed in Jesus and revered the Torah as the core of her scriptures. Restoration is a riveting argument for a return to that original biblical expression of faith in Jesus. Discover for yourself the profound beauty of Torah life, the celebration of the biblical Sabbath, and the application... more...

  • The Broken Branchby Thomas E. Mann; Norman J. Ornstein

    Oxford University Press, USA 2006; US$ 13.99

    Congress is the first branch of government in the American system, write Thomas E. Mann and Norman J. Ornstein, but now it is a broken branch, damaged by partisan bickering and internal rancor. The Broken Branch offers both a brilliant diagnosis of the cause of Congressional decline and a much-needed blueprint for change, from two experts who understand... more...

  • The Citizen Lobbyistby Amanda Knief; Rev. Barry W. Lynn

    Pitchstone Publishing 2013; US$ 9.99

    A handbook for anyone who wants to learn about how to be active in local, state, and federal government, The Citizen Lobbyist shows how to have a voice in creating public policy. More citizen involvement is needed in our government processes to ensure the voices of the people are heard over the money of paid lobbyists, unions, and coalitions, both... more...

  • Government's Endby Jon Rauch

    PublicAffairs 2008; US$ 15.00

    "To those who would understand the reasons why Washington does not work, and to those who are seeking clues to end the gridlock for more than a brief spell, this book is a godsend."  --David Broder, The Washington Post more...
