Summary

Thoroughly updated through the historic 2000 Presidential election and its aftermath, this highly esteemed best-seller continues to provide students with an up-to-date and engaging introduction to the course.Written in the belief that we must first understand how American government and politics have developed in order to fully understand the issues facing our nation today, O'Connor & Sabato's text features a distinctive "Continuity and Change" theme. The text begins with why and how our government was formed, and then shows students how change is a necessary process that keeps our political system vibrant and effective. Students will see how every generation evaluates our government and makes it ever more responsive to the needs of the citizenry while maintaining the vision of the Framers. Since its first edition, this text has diligently reflected the rapid changes in American politics, and has always aimed to present information about politics that will actively interest students and provide them with the information they need to make informed decisions about their government, politics, and politicians.
