In this prize-winning book, a renowned political scientist debunks the commonly held myth that the American national government functions effectively only when one political party controls the presidency and Congress. For this new edition, David R. Mayhew has provided a new Preface, a new appendix, and a new concluding chapter that brings the historical narrative up to date.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In this welcome updating of his agenda-setting classic, David Mayhew cogently defends his original methodology and finds that divided government remains no less productive of important legislation than unified government. Written with Mayhew's usual clarity and grace, this is a book to be enjoyed by beginning and veteran students of Congress alike."-Gary Jacobson, professor of political science, University of California, San Diego

First edition: "First-rate. . . . Mayhew's tabulations and analysis are, quite simply, unimpeachable."-Morris Fiorina, Washington Monthly

"Will stand for years as a classic."-L. Sandy Maisel, Political Science Quarterly
