Politics in America 2012

Reliable, lively, insightful and objective, Politics in America has been called “the ultimate insider’s guide to politics.” Politics in America is an essential resource for any collection that serves readers who want authoritative information on the members of the 112th Congress.

The profiles of the 535 members plus the six delegates offer concise and candid analysis of personalities, political styles, legislative agendas, political ambitions, and reputations of members at home and on Capitol Hill. Detailed state and district information plus a wealth of information on partisan caucuses, standing committees and other member facts round out the book.

Profiles include:
• Biographical data, committee assignments, CQ Vote Studies, interest group ratings and contact information
• State-by-state and congressional voting demographics
• Census data and election results
• Leadership, caucuses and member statistics
