This first annotated bibliography dealing with U.S. federal legislative history covers both Congressional, executive agency, and special commission sources published from 1862 through 1990. The 257 entries provide information about the scope and content of the documents, the locations, the titles and popular names of the bills and laws, the publication dates, the author, the LC card number, the OCLC number, the SUDoc number, the CIS number, the UPA citation, and other information about relevant bills. Information is given about the specific sources and types of sources in the Congress, the Congressional Research Service, and the executive agencies. The annotations describe the types of documentation covered in a work, provide notes about citations and the pagination of original documents, and refer to the location of texts in the Statutes at Large. Author, popular name, Congressional session, public law number, and bill number indexes also make this landmark guide easily accessible for students, teachers, and government staff to use in conducting research into the vast treasury of historical data beginning with the laws in 1796 (4th Congress) through 1990 (101st Congress).

Seidman, J[acob] S. Seidman's Legislative History of Federal Income Tax Laws 1938-1861. New York: Prentice-Hall, Inc., [1938]. xviii, 1166 pp. Reprinted 2003 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN 1-58477-336-7. Cloth. $225. * This legislative history of the course of federal income tax laws as they have proceeded through Congress will be useful to those arguing or ruling on tax cases. The work collects the texts of the committee reports and discussions on the floor of Congress relating to all of the income tax provisions of the Revenue Acts from 1861 to 1938 that are of interpretive significance. Material is arranged act by act in inverse chronology. "The principle contribution is that it gathers together in compact and organized form these essential materials, which are otherwise scattered through many volumes of the Congressional Record, committee reports, and elsewhere. Many of these reports, particularly in the case of the earlier acts, are either unavailable or are extremely difficult or expensive to obtain. [T]he work has been carefully and thoroughly done.": A. H. Kent, American Bar Association Journal 25:479 cited in Marke, A Catalogue of the law Collection at New York University (1953) 852. Seidman's Legislative History of Federal Income and Excess Profits Tax Laws 1953-1939 is a two volume continuation also published by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.

Description :


Most major measures wind their way through the contemporary Congress in what Barbara Sinclair has dubbed “unorthodox lawmaking.” In this much-anticipated Fifth Edition of Unorthodox Lawmaking, Sinclair explores the full range of special procedures and processes that make up Congress’s work, as well as the reasons these unconventional routes evolved. The author introduces students to the intricacies of Congress and provides the tools to assess the relative successes and limitations of the institution. This dramatically updated revision incorporates a wealth of new cases and examples to illustrate the changes occurring in congressional process. Two entirely new case study chapters—on the 2013 government shutdown and the 2015 reauthorization of the Patriot Act—highlight Sinclair’s fresh analysis and the book is now introduced by a new foreword from noted scholar and teacher, Bruce I. Oppenheimer, reflecting on this book and Barbara Sinclair’s significant mark on the study of Congress.
