Editorial Reviews

The Economist
That Washington bible, packed with detail about national and state politics. . .is a legendary standby.
The Washington Post
Indispensable. . .If politics is the art of the possible, this compendium of statistics and information has gone as far as humanly possible.
From the Publisher
Day after day and year after year, the most consulted, respected, and influential book in Washington.

"That Washington bible, packed with detail about national and state politics...is a legendary stand-by."

— The Economist

"The single best reference there is for Congress and Washington specifically and the country generally."

— Jim Lehrer, The News Hour

"Indispensable...If politics is the art of the possible, this compendium of statistics and information has gone as far as humanly possible."

— The Washington Post

"Fun reading...The Almanac of American Politics knows every detail of this country's political landscape and in the process includes enough odd facts to satisfy any trivia buff."

— Bryant Gumbel

"Michael Barone is to politics what statistician-writer Bill James is to baseball, a mix of historian, social observer, and numbers cruncher who illuminates his subject with perspective and a touch of irreverence."

— Chicago Tribune
