"The nation's most respected nonpartisan source of information about how Washington policymaking machinery really works."
That's how Newsweek described National Journal. For more than 25 years, National Journal has reached subscribers with an award-winning weekly magazine noted for its dedication to "facts only" reporting. National Journal speaks to people who make it their business to know what's going on in the world's largest business -- the United States Government.
Only National Journal is exclusively devoted to the coverage and analysis of what the government is doing today, what it's going to do tomorrow, and how its actions affect every facet of our lives.
This 1998 edition of The Almanac of American Politics marks the eighth volume to be published by National Journal Inc. In addition to the Almanac and National Journal, National Journal Inc. publishes the monthly Government Executive magazine; CongressDaily, a daily fax newsletter covering Congress; The Hotline, a daily briefing on American politics; American Health Line, and Greenwire; the semi-annual directory, The Capital Source; and the National Journal Convention Daily, in conjunction with the Democratic and Republican Conventions. A new World Wide Web service, National Journal's "Cloakroom," debuted in July 1997.
