The U.S. House of Representatives: Reform or Rebuild?

Synopsis

The U.S. House of Representatives vastly overrepresents white males and underrepresents "minorities" and women. This essay collection examines the causes of the unrepresentative character of the House and analyzes reform possibilities, including alternative electoral systems, enlargement of the House, term limits, a new election campaign finance system, and more effective regulation of campaign contributions and expenditures.
