THE FIRST BOOK OF CONGRESS

An efficient once over of its main branches, committees, functions, electoral procedures, and relationships with other parts of the government and the nation as a whole, presents a working definition for beginning civics classes and general young interests. The big activities- budget appropriations and law making- are discussed first. With this backdrop, a look is taken at senators and representatives both as a group and individually, what they do to debate and engineer a particular bill and how they perform as committee members, ""watch dogs"" and in receiving petitions from special interests. A glossary of congressional terminology completes.
