Other Titles in:
Congress

October 2022 | 960 pages | CQ Press

Congress A to Z provides ready-reference insight into the national legislature, its organization, processes, major legislation, and history. No other volume so clearly and concisely explains every key aspect of the national legislature. The Seventh Edition of this classic, easy-to-use reference is updated with new entries covering the dramatic congressional events of recent years, including a demographically younger Congress, the urban-rural divide, and climate change.

Each of the more than 250 entries, arranged in encyclopedic A-to-Z format, provides insight into the key questions readers have about the U.S. Congress and helps them make sense of the continued division between Republicans and Democrats, the methods members use to advance their agendas, the influence of lobby groups, the role of committees and strong-willed leaders, and much more.

Key Features:

  • Available in both electronic and print formats
  • Quick answers to questions as well as in-depth background on the U.S. Congress
  • Detailed tables and index
  • Entries now include cross-references and lists of further readings to help readers continue the research journey
