Overview

This book points out that the interaction between the chambers in bicameral legislatures is central to understanding behavior in each chamber, a point neglected in previous studies. It surveys bicameral institutions from numerous countries and presents models that explain the significance of different institutional arrangements. These hypotheses are illustrated and tested with data from the French Fifth Republic, and supplemented with data from Germany, Japan, Switzerland, the United States, and the European Union.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...an interesting analysis....Tsebelis and Money sequentially examine the history and diversity of bicameralism and quantitatively evaluate different models of bicameralism and its various aspects. Information is presented on more than 50 bicameral systems worldwide, with particular attention paid to the French Fifth Republic." — Choice

"...this book provides a rich descriptive and theoretical framework for...empiracal questions. The authors have used a solid understanding of the historical and descriptive features of bicameralism to inform their theoretical arguments; and they test these arguments in a variety of creative ways. That is good social science." Charles R. Shipan, Governance
