Summary

Focusing on the work of Sri Lankan legislators, this book offers a unique model of representation useful in examining parliamentary systems, especially those found in the Third World. Dr. Oberst explores the legislator's role in the planning and implementation of development projects, an increasingly important part of Sri Lankan legislators' responsibilities as the country seeks to decentralize its development planning. He also discusses other areas of the legislators' involvement, including constituency service (largely employment counseling) and law-making.
