Congressman Sherrod Brown's Insider Book Now Readable Online

HOUSTON, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 31, 2006 -- Questia Media, Inc., the world's largest online educational library and research service, announces the addition of "Congress from the Inside: Observations from the Majority and the Minority" (Kent State University Press, 2004) by Congressman Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) to its collection of over 67,000 books. Visitors to Questia may read the book online for free throughout November.

Congressman Brown is running for U.S. Senate against the incumbent, Senator Mike DeWine.

"Congress from the Inside" has received high praise from the academic and political worlds for its intimate look at Washington politics. Ideal for both classroom and armchair reading, Brown's book depicts the inner workings and deal-makings of Congress. He walks the reader through the crafting of legislation and tours the offices and meeting rooms where so much of the work of the legislature is done, introducing us to the names and faces of power. With incisive candor, Brown exposes the strengths and weaknesses, successes and failures, diversity and elitism of the U.S. Congress.

This third edition of "Congress from the Inside" is completely revised, updated, and expanded to include five new chapters. Now in his sixth term, Congressman Brown discusses the 2000 election, September 11, and redistricting. He also examines how Congress is influenced by the drug industry, the public health agenda, and the war in Iraq.

"We are continually expanding our library of political science content," said Troy Williams, CEO and president of Questia. "Congressman Brown's work is just one example of the many high-quality books we have added for our subscribers."
