Davidson and Walter J. Oleszek, 1981 ($10.95, Congressional Quarterly, Inc.) "These two congressional scholars have provided a remarkably detailed and comprehensive description of two main facets of Congress: the motivations and behavior of its individual members and the ways in which the House and Senate set about making policy and passing or defeating legislation." Congressional Quarterly's Guide to Congress, 3rd ed., 1982 ($85, Congressional Quarterly, Inc.) Comprehensive chapters accompanied by well-selected lists and tables provide detailed information on the historical development of the Senate and the House, congressional powers and procedures, the legislative branch, the electorate, and the interaction of Congress with the executive, the judiciary, and other interest groups.

A variety of supplementary material is included, such as a list of executive officers from 1789 through 1971, a list of delegates to the Continental Congress--as well as officers of that Congress, and its time and place of meeting--and lists by congressional session of Representatives and Senators.

A description of the political and economic climate and a voter profile of each home State or district are also given. The material often reflects the opinions of the authors. Politics in America; Members of Congress in Washington and at Home ($29.50, Congressional Quarterly Press) Although the format of this biennial book is very similar to that of the Almanac of ~ m e r i c a npolitics, the emphasis is more on the individual Members, their accomplishments, and the role each has played in the legislative process. This analysis was drawn from interviews with Members about each other. - ' There a r e s e v e r a l o t h e r r e f e r e n c e books which p r o v i d e u s e f u l i n f o r m a t i o n on c o n g r e s s i o n a l d i s t r i c t s : .e C o n g r e s s i o n a l D i s t r i c t A t l a s ; D i s t r i c t s o f t h e 9 8 t h Congress (Government P r i n t i n g O f f i c e ) P r e p a r e d b y t h e Bureau o f t h e Census, t h i s a t l a s w i l l p r e s e n t maps showing b o u n d a r i e s o f t h e c o n g r e s s i o n a l d i s t r i c t s f o r t h e 9 8 t h Congress and i n c l u d e l i s t i n g s i d e n t i f y i n g t h e c o n g r e s s i o n a l d i s t r i c t s i n which c o u n t i e s and i n c o r p o r a t e d m u n i c i p a l i t i e s w i t h i n e a c h S t a t e g r e l o c a t e d .
