     Contempt of Congress
Publisher: Alphascript Publishing
Author(s):

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Contempt of Congress is the act of obstructing the work of the United States Congress or one of its committees. While historically the bribery of a Senator or Representative was considered "contempt of Congress," in modern times a person must refuse to comply with a subpoena issued by a Congressional committee or subcommittee ? usually seeking to compel either testimony or the production of documents ? in order to be considered in "contempt of Congress." In 1821, the Supreme Court issued its decision in Anderson v. Dunn, which held that Congress' power to hold someone in contempt was essential to ensure that Congress was "... not exposed to every indignity and interruption that rudeness, caprice, or even conspiracy, may mediate against it." The historical interpretation that bribery of a Senator or Representative was considered contempt of Congress has long since been abandoned in favor of criminal statutes.

     The U.S. Congress: A Very Short Introduction
Publisher: Oxford University Press
Author(s): Donald A. Ritchie

Many scholars believe that the framers of the Constitution intended Congress to be the preeminent branch of government. Indeed, no other legislature in the world approaches its power. Yet most Americans have only a murky idea of how it works.
In The U.S. Congress, Donald A. Ritchie, a congressional historian for more than thirty years, takes readers on a fascinating, behind-the-scenes tour of Capitol Hill--pointing out the key players, explaining their behavior, and translating parliamentary language into plain English. No mere civics lesson, this eye-opening book provides an insider's perspective on Congress, matched with a professional historian's analytical insight. After a swift survey of the creation of Congress by the constitutional convention, he begins to unscrew the nuts and pull out the bolts. What is it like to campaign for congress? To attract large donors? To enter either house with no seniority? He answers these questions and more, explaining committee assignments (and committee work), the role of staffers and lobbyists, floor proceedings, parliamentary rules, and coalition building. Ritchie explores the great effort put into constituent service--as representatives and senators respond to requests from groups and individuals--as well as media relations and news coverage. He also explores how the grand concepts we all know from civics class--checks and balances, advise and consent, congressional oversight--work in practice, in an age of strong presidents and a muscular Senate minority (no matter which party is in that position).
In this sparkling addition to Oxford's Very Short Introduction series, Donald Ritchie moves beyond the cynicism and the platitudes to provide a gem of a portrait of how Congress really works.

     Congress's Contempt Power: Law, History, Practice and Procedure
Publisher: Nova Science Pub Inc
Author(s):

Congress' contempt power is the means by which Congress responds to certain acts that in its view obstruct the legislative process. Contempt may be used either to coerce compliance (inherent contempt), punish the contemnor (criminal contempt), and/or to remove the obstruction (civil contempt). Although arguably any action that directly obstructs the effort of Congress to exercise its constitutional powers may constitute a contempt, in the last seventy years the contempt power (primarily through the criminal contempt process) has generally been employed only in instances of refusals of witnesses to appear before committees, to respond to questions, or to produce documents.This book examines the source of the contempt power, reviews the historical development of the early case law, outlines the statutory and common law basis for Congress' contempt power, and analyzes the procedures associated with each of the three different types of contempt proceedings. In addition, the book discusses limitations on both constitutional and constitutionally based on the power.

     Contempt of Congress: Baby Boomers Talk Sex, Race, Politics, Environment & Revolution
Publisher: Fresh Clean Day Publishing
Author(s): Barry Leonardini

" In my many years, I have come to the conclusion that one useless man is called a disgrace, that two are called a law firm and that three or more are called a Congress." John Adams, 2nd President of United States (1797-1801) One of the biggest challenges when writing a satire/farce about Congress is to be taken seriously. Because just normal reporting of Congressional behavior already contains much natural farce. So to stand out as a bona fide work of farce/ satire, then one is required to go over-the-top to make contact with the numbed readers and electorate. But I think I've succeeded. Join the fun. It's a private, provocative, freewheeling satirical conversation. The subjects include sex, culture, race, environment, politics and revolution. Nothing is sacred. Think you heard it all before? The talk swings between the real and the cartoon. Find out what can happen when a private exchange of ideas is taken out of context and made public. Why and when does farce become a serious matter? The French people eliminated their wastrel nobility. Our own American Revolutionaries violently broke away from the British because of "taxation without representation." Does the United States Congress resemble those two past, doomed ruling classes before they were dealt with? Do we also have a limit to our patience? Evolution inevitably leads to caricature and cartoon. That's why Congress became grotesque. The players in the book also ask how Congress can be reset to a sustainable normal? What is normal? Is a national normal that's administered by Congress possible or even desirable? Or is a sustainable normal only possible and welcome at the local level? If local is the goal then Congress has to go. Be provoked, read this book.

     In Contempt of Congress: Postwar Press Coverage on Capitol Hill (Praeger Series in Political Communication)
Publisher: Praeger
Author(s): Mark J. Rozell

Over the past decade, the public's opinion of Congress has declined?election after election?to record lows. Mark J. Rozell examines the electorate's ongoing disgust with its legislature and the reasons for it. Putting recent Congresses in historical perspective, he notes that our modern representatives are actually less corrupt than those of the past, due in large measure to increased public scrutiny and ongoing tightening of ethics and conflict of interest rules. Still, the public remains skeptical, indeed hostile, toward that most representative of our national institutions. Rozell finds that much of the blame goes to highly negative press coverage of the Congress, and government in general, and that while Congress has always been a favorite target of critics and comedians, healthy skepticism has now largely been replaced by a debilitating cynicism that undermines the foundations of representative government. A major study which will be of interest to scholars and students of American politics, government, and media.

     The House and Senate Explained: The People's Guide to Congress
Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company
Author(s): Ellen Greenberg

Your guide to understanding how Congress works, who does what, and why--and how to reach out and do something about it.

Ellen Greenberg sets the stage for both the House of Representatives and the Senate, explaining what the mace and hopper are, how the chambers are laid out, who the onstage actors are and what they do. Her section on the jargon--the most common phrases used--goes far beyond mere description to show how our government operates. She also explains how business is done: what happens on a daily basis and during the weekly schedule and how a bill becomes a law--or doesn't. The House and Senate Explained includes a chapter on using the Internet to access information about the House, the Senate, and the White House, from getting around Washington to accessing proposed bills to sending E-mail to your congressional representatives. In addition, you'll learn how to be heard by your representatives and how to take a more active role in committee hearings. A listing of all the congressional committees and subcommittees lets you know where your special concerns are being addressed. Whether a C-SPAN addict, a concerned citizen, or a general reader watching the nightly news, this hands-on manual will help you understand Congress and how to make it work for you.
