Handbook of Legislative Research
This Handbook offers an inventory of research on one of the central institutions of politics. That institution, commonly referred to as the 'legislature' in the United States and by various other names elsewhere, has been the focal point of study by scholars so attentive to each other's work that they constitute something of an informal academic community.
