Uncovering the Beat: The Real-World
Guide to Reporting on Government

Finalist: National Book Award for Journalism (1997)

This easy-to-use reference book compiles information on the workings of key government institutions: the presidency, Congress, the courts, the police, the agencies that regulate the economy and the environment, and those that provide education and health services.

It describes the structure of these institutions and the laws that govern them. It explains how these agencies work and untangles the often arcane procedures taht govern their operation. Government is a maze, and Uncovering the Beat is a guide to that maze.
