This third edition of Congress from the Inside adds an entirely new section that discusses topics including the Florida election in 2000; September 11, 2001; the 107th Congress; redistricting in Ohio; and the war in Iraq. 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 workings 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 U.S. Congress.
