Frances Lee book wins Kammerer Award

Thursday, Jul 1, 2021

Frances Lee and her co-author, James Curry (University of Utah), have been awarded APSA’s Gladys M. Kammerer Award by the American Political Science Association for their book, The Limits of Party: Congress and Lawmaking in a Polarized Era (University of Chicago Press 2020). The Gladys M. Kammerer Award is awarded to the best publication on the topic of American national policy in the preceding year.

Lee and Curry analyze the successes and failures of congressional parties to enact their legislative agendas and conclude that, even in our time of intense party polarization, bipartisanship remains the key to legislative success on Capitol Hill.

Frances Lee is professor of politics and public policy, and CSDP faculty associate, at Princeton University.
