Based on the Full Edition of American Government: Power and Purpose but with a simpler framework, the Brief Edition combines authoritative, concise coverage of the central topics in American politics with smart pedagogical features designed to get students thinking analytically. The Twelfth Edition has been extensively revised by new co-author Stephen Ansolabehere and updated with new pedagogy.
