Write a book review about Arnold, R. Douglass. 1990. The Logic of Congressional Action. Yale University Press.
Book reviews should not only tell what a book is about, but also whether it achieves the goals that the author presents. In this way a book review goes beyond the scope of a typical book report and provides a critical reaction to the book in addition to a summary. Book reviews should include a short introduction, summary of the book’s content (about three-four pages), and an evaluation of the book (two-four pages). The evaluation section should describe the major presuppositions and implications of the book as well as the strengths and weaknesses of the author’s argument.
