Senate Procedure and Practice is a practical, real-world explanation of the legislative process in the U.S. Senate. Filled with fascinating stories and insights, this book highlights not only why a given rule is in place, but also how it is practiced. Now in its second edition, the book has been updated to discuss the impact the Democratic takeover has had on basic Senate procedures and practices, including much-discussed Rule XXVIII.

Gold has taken a subject, U.S. Senate rules and procedures, that would normally occupy a few dozen pages of a manual and woven it into a book-length treatment filled with fascinating stories and discerning insights about how and why the Senate operates as it does. The result is an interesting, educational study of the Senate. Highly recommended. * CHOICE *
Carefully crafted and useful book....He is also very good at explaining the dauntingly complex procedures laid down by the Budget and Impoundment Act and the budget reconciliation process, both in theory and in practice. If you are a Washington lawyer who has a Hill practice, a journalist who covers Congress, or an academic who needs a handy and readable reference book on Senate procedure, Martin B. Gold's book deserves as conspicuous a place on your shelf as it has on mine. * Congress & the Presidency, June 13, 2011 *
