"The Dance of Legislation is a description of the American legislative process. Eric Redman draws on his two years as a member of Senator Warren Magnuson's staff to trace the drafting and passing of the National Health Service Bill (s.4106) with all the maneuvers, plots, counterplots, frustrations, triumphs, work, and dedication involved. He draws a picture of the bureaucratic infighting, political prerogatives, and Congressional courtesies necessary to make something happen on Capitol Hill. In a new Postscript, he reflects on how that process has, and has not, changed in the thirty years since the book was first published."--BOOK JACKET.
