Committees in Congress
Christopher J. Deering
Steven S. Smith
Excellent, also see the Congressional Deskbook
Deering and Smith's book is excellent. For how the Congress really works, see the Congressional Deskbook, which is updated every two years and comprehensively describes how Congress really works. I became aware of the Congressional Deskbook because of a review in last December's CHOICE, which described it as "A valuable, detailed, and highly functional synthesis of information about the ...
Audit Committee Essentials (Iia (Institute of Internal Auditors))
Curtis C. Verschoor
This book explains why risk management and internal controls in ANY organization are so important. Twothumbsup!
I liked this book very much. It was of interest to me because it explains why risk management and internal controls in ANY organization are so important. As a SCORE volunteer business coach I have to explain what is covered in this book from time to time. It's good for entrepreneurs to think in terms of internal accounting controls. This book is not written for entrepreneurs, though. It is ...

Hospitals, nursing homes, and home care agencies seeking approval by the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) must have a standing mechanism to address ethical issues. Most organizations have chosen to satisfy this with an interdisciplinary ethics committee. The best of these committees are knowledgeable, creative, and effective resources in their institutions. Many are well meaning but lack the information, ...

The Coming Insurrection (Semiotext(e) / Intervention)
The Invisible Committee
Breaking Through the Illusions
This is not an easy work to review because there are two possible audiences. First, the people who are already outside the TV induced illusion of modern capitalist life will easily understand this work, and revel in the spontaneous, youthful enthusiasm of the authors who are seeking to put life on a genuine human track. Secondly, everyone else who is still sleepwalking through the TV induced ...

Competing Principals: Committees, Parties, and the Organization of Congress
University of Michigan Press
Since Woodrow Wilson, political scientists have recognized the importance of congressional committees in the policy-making process. Congressional committees often determine what legislation will reach the floor of the House or Senate and what form that legislation will take. In spite of the broad consensus on the importance of congressional committees, there is little agreement on what explains committee action. Committees are alternately viewed ...
Federal Rules of Evidence: With Advisory Committee Notes and Legislative History 2006
Christopher B. Mueller
Laird C. Kirkpatrick
unless your professor requires this exact book, i'd get Federal Rules of Evidence + Your State rules of evidence combo book. if you don't, then this FRE book is just fine, like all the others. advisory notes are nice, but you know all the rules and notes are on nexis and westlaw. don't buy this if you can afford not to; otherwise, it's a fine book.

The Search Committee: A Novel
a superb book
This is a wonderful book. Its content and structure are fascinating. I learned a great deal about the traditional yeshiva world and its challenges from the modern Jewish world. Each character in this novel has something important to say. I looked forward to returning to it each time I put it down. In a word, a wonderful book without a word wasted in its 155 pages.
The Committee: A Novel (Middle East Literature in Translation)
Sun Allah Ibrahim
Mary S. St. Germain
Syracuse University Press
Joins A Distinguished Group
"The Committee", by Sun Allah Ibrahim joins the work of writers including Franz Kafka, Albert Camus, and Fyodor Dostoevsky. The comparison that is most easily drawn is to Kafka's, "The Trial". While this may be the easiest parallel to draw it suggests this is just a variation on a theme and that would be a disservice to this book and the author. The unnamed narrator first petitions a committee. ...

Healthy Eating for Life for Children
Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine
This book is really great! I like it because it addresses my questions as a Vegetarian, but isnt strictly so. It's for everyone. Most of the books out there dont go so far as to tell you about nutrition, and mainly give recipies and are mostly for meat eating diets. My son hates vegetables, and is a picky eater and I found that this book helped me with those issues instead of glossing over it ...
