The Legislative Politics & Policy Making Series at the University of Michigan Press covers both Congress and state legislatures and welcomes both quantitative and qualitative work. It encompasses work on interactions among Congress and other political entities. We are actively seeking political science and legislative politics writers for this series, and would be much obliged to hear about the ideas, projects, and goals of those involved. We look for manuscripts that make an important theoretical contribution, are methodologically rigorous, and address topics of important substantive interest, as well as "insider" books that explore the operation of Congress, an edited volume that provides accessible versions of recent research on Congress and analysis of congressional politics, or cross-over books that address topics such as gender, race, the media, and interest groups and Congress.

Series editor Janet Box-Steffensmeier has strong interests in legislative politics as well as political behavior and methodology. Her legislative publications include topics of congressional campaign finance, representation and electoral advantage in Congress, legislative success and effectiveness, legislative socialization, position taking, vote choice for members, and a current project on congressional politics of the blue slip.

David Canon is clearly situated in legislative politics as his primary field. He is perhaps best known for his work on race and representation (which concerned behavior in Congress), but he had also has published work on congressional elections, political careers in Congress, congressional leadership, and the evolution of the legislative committee system. His work includes traditional roll call analysis, analysis of speeches, sponsorship and cosponsorship, committee assignments, and congressional leadership.
