The United States is often referred to as the world's greatest deliberative body. And that is for good reason. The Senate Chamber-from its inception to its Golden Age to the present day-has been the setting for some of the most moving, decisive, and consequential debates in American history. But how does the Senate work? Senate Procedure and Practice not only answers this question but also explains and illustrates why the Senate has worked so well for more than 200 years. This practical, real-world explanation focuses on the three pillars of legislative procedure: the Senate rules, the parliamentary interpretations of the Senate rules, and statutes that impose procedural rules. The book is filled with fascinating stories and insights that highlight why a given rule is in place and how it is practiced. Now in its second edition, the book has been updated to discuss the impact the Democratic takeover has had on basic Senate procedures and practices, including much-discussed Rule XXVIII.

Martin B. Gold is a partner in Covington & Burling's Washington office and is co-chair of the firm's Legislative Practice Group. Most recently, he served as floor advisor and counsel to U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, assisting in all aspects of floor procedure and strategy during Senator Frist's first session as Majority Leader. Gold is one of the country's leading experts on congressional procedures, and for many years has been on the faculty of Congressional Quarterly. He was recently recognized by The Washingtonian as "One of the Top 50 Lobbyists" in DC.
Gold has taken a subject, U.S. Senate rules and procedures, that would normally occupy a few dozen pages of a manual and woven it into a book-length treatment filled with fascinating stories and discerning insights about how and why the Senate operates as it does. The result is an interesting, educational study of the Senate. Highly recommended. CHOICE Carefully crafted and useful book...He is also very good at explaining the dauntingly complex procedures laid down by the Budget and Impoundment Act and the budget reconciliation process, both in theory and in practice. If you are a Washington lawyer who has a Hill practice, a journalist who covers Congress, or an academic who needs a handy and readable reference book on Senate procedure, Martin B. Gold's book deserves as conspicuous a place on your shelf as it has on mine. Congress and The Presidency, June 13, 2011
