as to whether legislators bring this preference for reciprocity to Congress. Through an original survey experiment and observational studies of end-of-career behavior, Christian finds consistent evidence that legislators have an intrinsic preference for reciprocity.

This finding raises new questions for research in party discipline, partisan polarization, and interest group influence, and others.
