Required reading for anyone who wants to understand how to work within Congress. The House and Senate have unique rules and procedures to determine how legislation moves from a policy idea to law. Evolved over the last 200 years, the rules of both chambers are designed to act as the engine for that process. Each legislative body has its own leadership positions to oversee this legislative process. To the novice, whether a newly elected representative, a lawmaker’s staff on her first day at work, or a constituent visiting Washington, the entire process can seem incomprehensible. What is an open rule for a House Appropriations bill and how does it affect consideration? Why are unanimous consent agreements needed in the Senate? The authors of Inside Congress, all congressional veterans, have written the definitive guide to how Congress really works. It is the accessible and necessary resource to understanding and interpreting procedural tools, arcane precedents, and the role of party politics in the making of legislation in Congress.

"Tant que l'indépendance ne sera pas déclarée, le continent se sentira dans la situation d'un homme qui, ne cessant de remettre au lendemain quelque affaire désagréable, sait néanmoins qu'il doit s'en acquitter, répugne à s'y mettre, souhaite en avoir fini et est perpétuellement hanté par l'obsession de sa nécessité." Tom Paine, 1776.

A la manière de Short Cuts de Robert Altman, Adam Braver met ici en scène l'assassinat de J-F Kennedy à travers certains acteurs du drame, premiers rôles ou figurants. Autour de la figure centrale de Jackie Kennedy, quelques personnages vont vivre eux aussi une journée particulière : un tailleur de Dallas, dont le nom et le film amateur feront le tour du monde, un médecin de l'hôpital Parkland, qui pratiquera l'autopsie, le personnel de la Maison-Blanche chargé des enfants du couple... Mêlant avec habileté la grande et la petite histoire, l'auteur nous fait pénétrer dans l'intimité des protagonistes du drame. Un roman hypnotique servi par une écriture magnifique de précision et par une construction ensorcelante.

COMMENT PAYER LA GUERRE

Comment payer la guerre (1940) est considéré comme la quatrième oeuvre maîtresse de John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946). Jusque-là inédit en français, ce petit livre est une large anticipation de la théorie et de la politique économique de cette deuxième moitié du XXe siècle. Y apparaissent comme des perspectives nouvelles, l'analyse de l'inflation, celle du rôle particulier qu'y joue l'épargne, la recherche des fondements précis et quantitatifs de la politique économique, une réflexion omniprésente sur les rapports qu'entretiennent les décisions macro-économiques de l'état et la contrainte d'une justice sociale toujours placée au premier rang des préoccupations, les prémices d'un raisonnement en termes de Comptabilité nationale.
