Paperback Published: 07/10/2011
No matter how you voted in the 2010 election, both Democrats and Republicans can agree that there is one indispensable guide to people, politics, and power in Washington. "The Almanac of American Politics" is the gold standard - the book everyone involved, invested, or interested in American politics must have on their reference shelf. As in previous editions, the "2012 Almanac" includes profiles of every member of Congress and every governor. It offers in-depth and completely up-to-date narrative profiles of all 50 states and 435 House districts, covering everything from economics to history to, of course, politics. The new edition also contains Michael Barone's sharp-eyed analysis of the 2010 congressional elections, detailing significant trends, redistricting initiatives, and the like. Full of maps, census data, and information on topics ranging from campaign expenditures to voting records to interest group ratings, the "2012 Almanac of American Politics" presents everything you need to know about American politics in snappy prose and framed by cogent analysis.
