Home style : House Members in their districts by Richard F Fenno( Book )

30 editions published between 1978 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,030 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An important new study that provides new research on the United Stated Congress by observing representatives in their home districts, rather than in Washington. This text presents a coherent picture of what elected house members see when they view their constituencies, and how these perceptions affect their political behavior. During nearly eights years of research the author accompanied eighteen representatives of diverse backgrounds in their districts for a unique "over-the-shoulder" perspective on congressional home style. Professor Fenno's observational approach is enlivened with many examples and lends itself to a readable analysis. HOME STYLE will be an invaluable addition to courses in American government, the Congress, and political parties.-back cover

Senators on the campaign trail : the politics of representation by Richard F Fenno( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a book about the politics of representative democracy, written from the perspective of the politicians who make it work. Typically, political scientists study campaigns from the perspective of the voter and for the purpose of explaining election outcomes. But campaigns also need to be studied from the perspective of the candidate, for the purpose of understanding representation. Richard F. Fenno, Jr., traveled with ten U.S. senators as they campaigned in their home states - using what he calls the "drop in/drop out, tag along/hang around" method of research - to present a developmental picture of their activities. His focus here is on three such activities - pursuing a career, campaigning for office, and building constituency connections. Taken together, the three constitute the political underpinnings of representative democracy

Going home : Black representatives and their constituents by Richard F Fenno( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

30 years ago there were nine African Americans in the US House of Representatives. Today there are four times that number. In 'Going Home' Richard F. Fenno explores what representation has meant - and means today - to black voters and to the politicians they have elected to office. Fenno follows the careers of four black representatives - Louis Stokes, Barbara Jordan, Chaka Fattah, and Stephanie Tubbs Jones - from their home districts to the halls of the Capitol. He finds that while these politicians had different visions of how they should represent their districts they shared crucial organizational and symbolic connections to their constituents
When incumbency fails : the Senate career of Mark Andrews by Richard F Fenno( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Political scientists know that incumbent members of the United States Congress usually win reelection. This book is about one who did not. After twenty-three years of continuous service -- seventeen in the House of Representatives and six in the Senate -- Senatory Mark Andrews of North Dakota was defeated for reelection. The central questions of the book are: What happened and why?
The challenge of congressional representation by Richard F Fenno( Book )

14 editions published in 2013 in English and German and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Main description: At a moment when Congress is widely viewed as hyper-partisan and dysfunctional, Richard Fenno provides a variegated picture of American representational politics. The Challenge of Congressional Representation offers an up-close-and-personal look at the complex relationship between members of Congress and their constituents back home. When not crafting policy in Washington, the 435 members of the U.S. House of Representatives are busy assessing and building voter support in their districts. Fenno delves into the activities of five members of the House-Republicans representing Pennsylvania and New York, and Democrats from California, Florida, and Illinois. Spanning the ideological spectrum, these former and current representatives are senior lawmakers and rookie back-benchers from both urban and rural areas. Fenno travels with them in their own political territories, watching and talking with them, conducting interviews, and meeting aides and constituents. He illuminates the all-consuming nature of representational work-the complicated lives of House members shuttling back and forth between home and Capitol, building and maintaining networks, and making compromises. Agreeing to talk on the record without protective anonymity, these elected House members emerge as real personalities, at once praiseworthy and fallible. While voting patterns and policy analysis constitute an important window into the legislative process, the nonquantifiable human element that political scientists so frequently overlook is the essence of negotiation. Fenno focuses our attention on how congressional leaders negotiate with constituents as well as with colleagues
