Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This book is based on a series of lectures given by the author as part of the Julian J. Rothbaum Lecture Series at the University of Oklahoma. Conable, president of the World Bank, is an expert Congress-watcher and presents a critique of Congress, particularly the House of Representatives, in its quest to reform tax legislation. The role of the Ways and Means Committee in this effort is thoroughly analyzed and the roles of key members such as Al Ullman and Dan Rostenkowski are highlighted. Conable's review of the history of tax legislation activities by Congress provides a frame of reference for the student/scholar who wants to explore the behavior of this powerful legislative body. A well-written, thought-provoking commentary on the subject.-- Steven J. Mayover, Free Lib. of Philadelphia
Shows how Congress operates and how tax policy is created. Takes a look at the ways and means committee, various federal acts related to the income tax, and current taxation representation. Based on the lectures of the author, a veteran member of Ways and Means, in 1985 at the University of Oklahoma. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
