Product Overview

"This is an impressive work. Burden''s argument that ideology is important, but is not everything, is compelling. It does not tear down what we know but rather builds on the existing literature with a new take. What he gives us--that some issues may not reflect the standard left-right continuum, and that legislators'' personal experiences and values come into play here--is both highly original and very important."--Eric M. Uslaner, University of Maryland

"This book represents a major contribution to the study of legislative politics. Its purpose is to explore how legislators are influenced by their own personal backgrounds and experiences as they go about their legislative activities, including roll-call voting, floor speeches, and cosponsoring legislation. It will be widely read by legislative scholars and will influence how they think about the determinants of legislative behavior."--James Garand, Louisiana State University
