Synopsis

The third book in the Fundamentals of American Government civics series explores the inner workings of this important part of the legislative branch. As with Selecting a President and The U.S. Senate, this book is written for all audiences, but voiced toward high school seniors and college freshmen-or any citizen interested in a concise yet authoritative exploration of this representative entity.

Written by former social policy analyst and political writer Matthew Spieler, this compelling and digestible book carefully examines and explains exactly how the House of Representatives operates. From its voting procedure to historic beginnings and modern day issues, there is no area of this governmental body left un-revealed.
