How Congress evolves : social bases of institutional change by Nelson W Polsby( )

22 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,832 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this tale of one of America's most august institutions, Nelson Polsby argues that among other things, from the 1950s to the 1990s, Congress evolved. In short, Polsby argues that air conditioning altered the demography of the Southern States, which in turn changed the political parties of the South, which transformed the composition and in due course the performance of the US House of Representatives. This evolutionary process led to the House's liberalization and later to its transformation into an arena of sharp partisanship, visible among both Democrats and Republicans. This book breathes new life into the dusty corners of institutional history, and offers an explanation for important transformations in the congressional environment

New Federalist papers : essays in defense of the Constitution by Alan Brinkley( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 1,059 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New Federalist Papers brings together three prominent and highly visible constitutional experts - Alan Brinkley, Nelson W. Polsby, and Kathleen M. Sullivan - to address the threats posed by current challenges to the American Constitution and defend the representative democracy put in place by its framers. Like Hamilton, Madison, and Jay, the authors of New Federalist Papers see danger in the effort to diminish and relocate federal power at the same time that they recognize the importance of the market, of state and local governments, and of the many other institutions on which a healthy society depends. They aim to stimulate debate at a time when there is much at stake, recognizing that it is the task of public discourse to bring about a reasoned consideration of such issues as gun control, term limits, flag burning, the balanced-budget amendment, campaign finance reform, and the attempt to require a "supermajority" in Congress for the passage of controversial legislation
