    Bradshaw and Pring - both Clerks at Westminster - wrote a well-received study of Parliament and Congress (1972, new ed 1980). Much has happened since then, both in politics and to the institutions. The present work is an entirely fresh look at the two legislatures. Though their constitutional positions and development are quite distinct, they nevertheless have much in common historically and face many of the same contemporary problems. The authors' views of theprocesses and problems of Congress and Parliament rest on their respective careers - in both cases over some forty years - as senior and impartial officers of the House of Representatives and the House of Commons with first-hand experience of the two major institutions. That experience has enabledthem to judge the prospects for Congress and Parliament without political partiality but with understanding of the complex interplay of politics and procedure which is everyday life on Capitol Hill and at Westminster.
