Tribune of the People

The Minnesota Legislature and Its Leadership

1990
Author:

Royce Hanson

Tribune of the People

I know of no other book which looks at the institution of the state legislature in such depth and with such sensitivity to how the process ‘really works.’ Tribune of the People provides a wealth of information and a suitable agenda for debating fundamental issues.

Wendell Anderson, former governor of Minnesota

To my knowledge, this is the most thorough study of the legislative process in recent years. It received the full support of legislative leaders, past and present, and the considerable resources of the Humphery Institute and the University of Minnesota.
