Heavy Lifting: the Job of the American Legislature.

Heavy Lifting The Job of the American Legislature by Alan Rosenthal

"In Heavy Lifting Alan Rosenthal has rendered a comprehensive, accurate and insightful account of what state legislatures do and how they do it. From his descriptions of legislative life, constitutional roles, political motivation, constituency claims, campaign pressures, parliamentary and political obstacles, media characterizations, consensus building, and sheer hard work--his narrative is balanced, understandable, and most importantly, describes how things really are."

--William P. Russell, Chief Counsel, Vermont General Assembly
