Editors: Carol S. Plesser
Book Description:
This new book focuses on the Congress of the United States which has evolved continuously since its founding. Although critics abound, both in and outside congress itself, it is most certainly true that the tasks and responsibilities assigned to Congress present a challenge to an organization which is sometimes unwieldy to say the least. Information has become so ubiquitous in the age of the Internet that Congress seems to struggle to keep up. Congress is largely run by the permanent staff which is now in excess of 30,000 people. It is pushed, pulled and jerked by lobbying groups whose interests are more often than not in opposition to the best interests of the majority of the population.
