1984 0-88946-657-2
An empirical and ethical examination of the role of compromise in American politics. Interviews of 34 Senators and 20 staffmembers, as well as with several lobbyists and journalists, provide a rare glimpse into the world of political decision-making. Valuable not only for studying the process of political compromise, but also for its historical account of Congress during the session during which the research took place.
