KIRKUS REVIEW

A full-face view of the U.S. Congress, after the Legislature Reorganization Act of 1946, and detailed proposals for the further streamlining of this inefficient, cumbersome body. The authors point out the changes and growth in the functions and duties of Congress since that of Washington, and in the interests of modernization discredit traditional customs and procedures. They urge that we curb lobbyists, filibuster, patronage, seniority, the two thirds rule, install electric voting, remove irritants between executive and legislative branches, improve executive liaison on Capitol Hill, strengthen bill-drafting service, etc. And in most cases, the authors present definite plans to carry out their proposals. Popular, informative government.
