Peruse new editions of three annual CQ Press political resources
Washington DC (August 30, 2011) ― Researchers now have access to the most up-to-date political information in the latest versions of three annual resources from CQ Press: Washington Information Directory 2011-2012, Historic Documents of 2010, and Congressional Roll Call 2010.
Washington Information Directory 2011-2012 is the essential one-stop information source for U.S. governmental and nongovernmental agencies and organizations. With more than 10,000 listings, searchable by name, organization or subject, the Directory provides contact information for those in the Obama administration, the Supreme Court, Congress, including committee and subcommittee information, Federal agencies and posts, as well as governors and other state officials, U.S. ambassadors and foreign diplomats, policy groups and more. The Directory helps users quickly and easily find the right person at the right organization.
Historic Documents of 2010 makes primary source research easy by presenting, in one volume, key excerpts from 100+ documents about the important U.S. and world events of last year. Beginning with an insightful essay that sets approximately 70 of the previous year’s events in context, the resource includes both official and other influential reports and surveys, speeches from leaders and opinion makers, court cases, legislation, testimony, and much more. Each entry provides background, history and context for the document and full-source citations are provided, along with Web addresses containing complete documents, if available.
Congressional Roll Call 2010 provides an objective, authoritative member-by-member survey and summary of every roll call vote taken in the House and Senate. Comprehensive and easy-to-understand summaries provide a brief overview of each bill’s main objectives. Critics from across the political spectrum agree that Congressional Roll Call presents the best summaries of bills available anywhere. This is the ideal one stop resource for understanding a full year of legislative activities.
Not only do these three user-friendly resources provide up-to-date and trusted information that is accurate and objective; a new edition of each is published every year, making it possible for libraries to set up a standing order so their patrons can always have the most current political information at their fingertips.
