One of the major transformations on the Washington scene since World War II, and especially in the last quarter century, is the growth in the number, energy and qualifications of congressional aides working for individual members of Congress and committees. The memoir and analytical literature has been slow to describe this group of fast-moving and generally young men and women-a "fourth branch of government," as they have been called. This book is a readable insider's account of interest to all with a taste for politics, but especially to those who are or would like to be a congressional aide.
