Recommended Titles and Treatises

Robert's rules of order newly revised
In contrast to the 60 page Modern Rules of Order, the 11th edition of the Robert's Rules of Order, Newly Revised is over 700 pages. This classic work on parliamentary procedure is a comprehensive source seeking to cover all the possible circumstances that may arise in a “deliberative assembly.” The work includes a very interesting history of the development of rules of assembly through the formalization of the rules by Henry Martyn Roberts. Helpful charts, tables and lists streamline the access to rules to various types of motions. The library also has Robert's Rules in plain English for readers wanting a less comprehensive approach.
