PS 360 The Congress

This is a comparison of the styles of legislators under varying circumstances: winning election, retaining home voter support, adapting to Congress and legislative peers, relating to leadership, bargaining with interest groups and meeting the press. It evaluates the goals of legislators and their relationship to the executive and debates whether Congress deserves its poor public image.

Prerequisite: PS 101 American Politics  strongly recommended.
