520 8  Once elected, members of Congress face difficult decisions
       about how to allocate their time and effort. On which 
       issues should they focus? What is the right balance 
       between working in one's district and on Capitol Hill? How
       much should they engage with the media to cultivate a 
       national reputation? William Bernhard and Tracy Sulkin 
       argue that these decisions and others define a 
       "legislative style" that aligns with a legislator's 
       ambitions, experiences, and personal inclinations, as well
       as any significant electoral and institutional 
       constraints. Bernhard and Sulkin have developed a 
       systematic approach for looking at legislative style 
       through a variety of criteria, including the number of the
       bills passed, number of speeches given, amount of money 
       raised, and the percentage of time a legislator voted in 
       line with his or her party. Applying this to ten 
       congresses, representing twenty years of congressional 
       data, from 1989 to 2009, they reveal that legislators' 
       activity falls within five predictable styles.0These 
       styles remain relatively consistent throughout 
       legislators' time in office, though a legislator's style 
       can change as career goals evolve, as well as with changes
       to individual or larger political interests, as in 
       redistricting or a majority shift. Offering insight into a
       number of enduring questions in legislative politics, 
       Legislative Style is a rich and nuanced account of 
       legislators' activity on Capitol Hill
