Congressional and Presidential Relations in the United States. Studies in Governmental Gridlock
|Author: ||Pederson, William|
A number of distinguished political scientists, historians, and present and former Congressmen address the issue of governmental gridlock from structural and psychological perspectives.

"This is a short, interesting, useful book for student and teacher alike. It is helpful as well for a general public eager to see through the fog surrounding governmental process. . . . The topic of this book has attracted the best political and scholarly talent for two centuries. It must be freshly faced and reanalyzed in each generation, and this book is an excellent update." - ILA Quarterly Newsletter
