This new edition has been thoroughly revised and expanded by expert CQ Press writers to offer a complete picture of the institutional structures, procedures and history of Congress. Updates include insight and analysis on the 2008 and 2010 shifts in power of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, use of social media to communicate with constituents, revised figures for congressional pay and benefits, Tea Party gains, ethics investigations and the creation of super PACs. It also includes a selected bibliography and key reference materials: a list of all members of congress who have served since 1789; congressional election results; floor leaders and committee chairs; dates for sessions of congress; women, black, Asian, and Hispanic members; and many more.
