       Concluding remarks: plurality-led congresses as a research
       agenda 
520    "Plurality-led Congresses are among the most pervasive and
       least studied phenomena in presidential systems around the
       world. Often conflated with divided government, where an 
       organized opposition controls a majority of seats in 
       congress, plurality-led congresses are characterized by a 
       party with fewer than 50 percent of the seats still in 
       control of the legislative gates. Extensive gatekeeping 
       authority without plenary majorities, this book shows, 
       leads to policy outcomes that are substantially different 
       from those observed in majority-led congresses. Through 
       detailed analyses of legislative success in Argentina and 
       Uruguay, this book explores the determinants of law 
       enactment in fragmented congresses. It describes in detail
       how the lack of majority support explains legislative 
       success in standing committees, the chamber directorate, 
       and the plenary floor"--|cProvided by publisher
