Scott, Foresman, and Co.Robert's Rules of Orderis the short title of a book, written byBrig. Gen.Henry Martyn Robert, containingrules of orderintended to be adopted as aparliamentary authorityfor use by adeliberative assembly.Currently in its eleventh edition and published under the nameRobert's Rules of Order Newly Revised(and often referred to using theinitialismRONR), it is a widely[1]usedparliamentary authorityin the English-speaking world.History and originsIn his later work as an active member of several organizations, Robert discovered that members from different areas of the country had very different views regarding what the proper parliamentary rules were, and these conflicting views hampered the organizations in their work. He eventually became convinced of the need for a new manual on the subject, one which would enable many organizations to adopt the same set of rules.The procedures prescribed by the book were loosely modeled after those used in theUnited States House of Representatives, with such adaptations as Robert saw fit for use in ordinary societies. The author's interest inparliamentary procedurebegan in 1863 when he was chosen to preside over a church meeting and, although he accepted the task, felt that he did not have the necessary knowledge of proper procedure.ExplanationThe book is designed for use in ordinary societies rather thanlegislative assemblies, and it is the most commonly adopted parliamentary authority among societies in the United States.[2]The book claims to be a "codification of the present-day general parliamentary law (omitting provisions having no application outside legislative bodies)".[3]This statement does not imply any approbation on the part of the courts, and the "general parliamentary law" is related neither tostatutorylegal requirements nor tocommon-lawprecedent derived from court judgments. As it is widely accepted and based for the most part on long-standing traditions of parliamentary procedure, thecurrent editionof the book is considered a reliable reference[citation needed]. Nevertheless, the provisions of any particular manual are not, as a general matter, legally binding upon an assembly that has not formally adopted it as its parliamentary authority; any such manual can at best be cited as "persuasive".[4]In addition, a number of changes have been made to recent editions, such as provisions dealing with videoconferences, teleconferences, and email, which now makes these editions more than merely codifications of the "present-day general parliamentary law" as existed at the time Robert was originally writing.
