"The Congressional Experience combines an engaging, enlightening narrative with photos, figures, maps, and tables to tell the story of congressman David Price's odyssey from ivory tower of Duke University to the citadel of Capital Hill. Along the way, we get a clear sense of the challenge, disappointment, elation and deep concern implicit in serving as a member of Congress - especially the kind of member Representative Price has chosen to be. In an election year filled with name-calling, teeth-gnashing, and Congress-bashing, it is refreshing to hear David Price discuss what it means to simultaneously serve his constituency, his country, and his strong personal convictions about good government. A former professor of political science at Duke University, David E. Price has represented North Carolina's Fourth Congressional District since 1987. He is an at-large Democratic Whip and a member of the Appropriations Committee. His previous publications include Who Makes the Laws? And Bringing Back the Parties."; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall; Signed by Author
