A reader to accompany Ginsberg and Wagner Hill's Congress: The First Branch

This reader offers an examination of such topics as congressional elections, the internal structure of Congress, the legislative process, Congress and the president, and Congress and the courts. It is designed to accompany the course text Congress: The First Branch, which introduces Congress as America’s most democratic institution. Based more on the history of the branch than on its modern applications, this volume is essential for students utilizing the main text and studying Congress at large.

Benjamin Ginsberg is the David Bernstein Professor of Political Science at Johns Hopkins University and chair of the Hopkins Center for Advanced Governmental Studies. Kathryn Wagner Hill is director of the Center for Advanced Governmental Studies at Johns Hopkins.

"This is an excellent supplemental reader, appropriate for current developments in Congress as well as Congressional electioneering."—John Grummel, Upper Iowa University
