Congress and Its Members has been the gold standard for Congress courses for thirty years. In the fifteenth edition, authors Roger H. Davidson, Walter J. Oleszek, Frances E. Lee, and Eric Schickler offer comprehensive coverage of the U.S. Congress and the legislative process by examining the tension between Congress as a lawmaking institution and as a collection of politicians constantly seeking re-election.

The fifteenth edition considers the 2014 midterm elections and discusses the agenda of the new Congress, White House-Capitol Hill relations, party and committee leadership changes, judicial appointments, and partisan polarization, as well as covering changes to budgeting, campaign finance, lobbying, public attitudes about Congress, reapportionment, rules, and procedures. Always balancing great scholarship with currency, Congress and Its Members, Fifteenth Edition features lively case material along with relevant data, charts, exhibits, maps, and photos.
