Editorial Reviews

Booknews
<:st> The first edition was cited in "ARBA". Arranged alphabetically in this two-volume reference, entries for every member of Congress serving between 1947 and 1995 cite basic biographical data, which is followed by tables presenting voting scores and interest group ratings. Four voting scores (exclusive to the publisher) indicate support of the Conservative Coalition, alliance with the member's party, support of the President's position, and recorded votes. Interest group ratings represent the percentage of votes on which each member voted in favor of a special group's position; among the ten interest groups represented are the National Education Association, the American Civil Liberties Union, the American Conservative Union, and the League of Conservation Voters.
