Summary

AMERICAN GOVERNMENT, 7th, is a mainstream text with diverse perspectives. Focusing on the responsiveness of government, it helps students understand the evolution and impact of important features of government. The book is a three-time winner of the annual award given by the women's caucus of APSA for coverage of women. Written in an engaging writing style and with more research citations than any book on the market, AMERICAN GOVERNMENT is both readable and scholarly. It includes the four policy chapters that the brief UNDERSTANDING AMERICAN GOVERNMENT does not.
