The Logic of Congressional Action
In this book, R. Douglas Arnold offers a theory that explains how legislators make decisions across the whole range of domestic policy, showing why organized interests frequently triumph and why the general public sometimes wins. By demonstrating how legislative leaders build coalitions for both types of programs, he illuminates recent legislative decisions in such areas as economic, tax, and energy policy.

Review: The Logic of Congressional ActionUser Review - Kristofer Petersen-Overton - Goodreads
An important book, albeit extremely repetitive and unnecessarily long for the simple argument it puts forward. Read full review
Review: The Logic of Congressional ActionUser Review - Meggan - Goodreads
Arnold uses outdated rational choice "logic" to defend a theory largely (and admittedly) devoid of reality. Given that the book was written before the internet, blogs, and Fox News, I can't really see much use for this book in understanding contemporary Congressional action. Read full review
