This is one of the few works in any language to concentrate on the Bundesrat, the upper house of the German Federal Republic. By studying a series of legislative case histories of bills presented between 1949 and 1960, Pinney assesses the role of party politics in maintaining three persistent characteristics of the Bundesrat.
