Summary

AMERICAN GOVERNMENT: HISTORICAL, POPULAR, & GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES is a new text offering a uniquely current and comprehensive introduction to American government and politics explored through three essential, integrated perspectives--historical, popular, and global. Written in a clear, accessible, and engaging style, the text incorporates the most recent scholarship, including thought-provoking analysis of government institutions and political issues in every chapter, all complemented by vivid graphs, maps, and photographs. AMERICAN GOVERNMENT: HISTORICAL, POPULAR, & GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES provides a rich and detailed overview of American government, its history, and its ongoing evolution as influenced by public opinion and national and global events. In doing so, the text empowers you to think critically about the political structures that frame current issues, to understand your own roles and power in the political process, and to be better informed and more involved citizens.
