In the second edition of Congress from the Inside, Sherrod Brown updates his insider's view of the workings of Congress with lively discussions of the Clinton impeachment, continued haggling over prescription drug legislation, and the "Battle in Seattle" over the 1999 World Trade Organization conference.Congress from the Inside has received high praise from the academic and political worlds for its intimate look at Washington politics. Ideal for both classroom and armchair reading, Brown's book depicts the inner-working and deal-makings of Congress. He walks the reader through the crafting of legislation and tours the offices and meeting rooms where so much of the work of the legislature is done, introducing us to the names and faces of power. With incisive candor, Brown exposes the strengths and weaknesses, successes and failures, diversity and elitism of the United States Congress.
