A book by a great congressional scholar… Richard Fenno continues to remind us, even in a highly partisan era, that the 435 members of the House are representatives of highly distinct districts and, as such, each is a unique political entity.—Burdett A. Loomis, University of Kansas

This book rounds out a several-decade enterprise by the author to case out, document, and explain the relations of representation between members of the U.S. House of Representatives and their constituencies back home. Taken together, Richard Fenno’s oeuvre is the most important contribution to congressional scholarship during recent generations.—David R. Mayhew, Yale University
