Some brief overview of this book

The United States Congress can be an enigma—overwhelming even those who have been in Washington for years. To assist Members of Congress, staff, government relations professionals and the general public through the Hill’s complexities, the Congressional Institute has published Surviving Inside Congress. This guide tells the story of how Congress was created and highlights important events that have formed the modern-day institution. It not only explores the essentials of House and Senate legislative procedures, but also takes an in-depth look at critical topics like Congressional communications, public opinion, ethics, and the partisan polarization that has frustrated the nation.Although the second edition of Surviving Inside Congress was published only two years ago, life on Capitol Hill changes so quickly that another was warranted. This latest version covers a number of events that have occurred since the last publication: the 2012 Presidential and Congressional elections, changes to ethics rules concerning insider trading, and Senate filibuster reform. Other sections have been significantly expanded, including discussions of parliamentary procedure, management, communications, and political incivility and partisanship.

Working as an aide to a Member of Congress can be a daunting task. Most new staff members are ill equipped to the meet the diverse and critical needs of elected officials and their constituents. There are no comprehensive training programs, and no curriculum that adequately addresses the multiple roles they will be responsible for. Surviving Inside Congress tries to address these challenges by providing essential and non-partisan educational information to new Congressional staff and filling in some gaps for experienced Hill professionals. Written by three former Congressional staffers whose collective service to the institution totals more than 50 years, it is the first publication of its kind to give staff detailed insight into what is expected and required of those who are the glue that holds the institution of Congress together. No resource is better for current or aspiring staffers.

Although it is widely distributed on Capitol Hill, Surviving Inside Congress will interest a much larger audience. It has served as a textbook at the university level but is written in a tone that the general public will find readable, making it the perfect resource for anyone who would like an insiders view of how Congress really works.

Founded in 1987, the Congressional Institute, Inc. is a not-for-profit 501(c)(4) corporation dedicated to helping Congress better serve its constituents and helping their constituents better understand the operations of the national legislature.
