Summary

With new features and thoroughly updated, the number one book in American government continues to provide the most current and engaging introduction available for the course. This Alternate Edition is the comprehensive version of O'Connor and Sabato's text without the policy chapters. 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 and Sabato offer a historical perspective and bring the story of our system right up to the present with an abundance of current and student-relevant examples.
