Eliot Nelson

The Beltway Bible

A Totally Serious A-Z Guide to Our No-Good, Corrupt, Incompetent, Terrible, Depressing, and Sometimes Hilarious Government

€ 19.95


`How is legislation crafted? How do you lose an election? What do `bundler,` `quorum call` and `omnibus` mean? Why do some of the White House`s most important meetings occur at a Starbucks? Why are Washington insiders obsessed with something called JumboSlice? What, exactly, is a `skintern?` Eliot Nelson, one of Washington`s funniest and most admired young journalists, knows how the sausage factory works and his new book, The Beltway Bible, is every citizen`s must-have owner`s manual. Arranged from A toZ, The Beltway Bible provides an insider`s perspective of politics and government, breaking down both into easily-digested entries on subjects like how legislation is formed, the scope of the president`s power and an overview of federal agencies. Nelson also looks at D.C.`s less-well-known power structures: the internal pecking order of White House aides, the high school cafeteria power struggles behind party invites and the petty congressional arguments over how highway on-ramps are named. The Beltway Bible makes our complex government accessible in a way that will please everyone from Jon Stewart to John Doe. Eliot Nelson`s The Beltway Bible is tailor-made for Election 2016`-
