Understanding political issues.  June 29, 2011
by


American Government: Institutions and Policies sets the standard for public policy coverage while maintaining focus on three fundamental topics: the institutions of American government; the historical development of governmental procedures, actors, and policies; and who governs in the United States and to what ends. This textbook really explains everything as a textbook should do. And helps a lot on understanding political issues that are related to people. The significantly enhanced media package with new online tools makes the learning experience engaging and accessible. Highly recommended!






American Government : Institutions and Policies: 4 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

Acclaimed for the scholarship of its prominent authors and the clarity of its narrative, AMERICAN GOVERNMENT: INSTITUTIONS AND POLICIES sets the standard for public policy coverage while maintaining focus on three fundamental topics: the institutions of American government; the historical development of governmental procedures, actors, and policies; and who governs in the United States and to what ends.

Student involvement in the material is bolstered by proven pedagogical features such as chapter outlines, "Who Governs?" and "To What Ends?" learning objective questions framing each chapter and "How Things Work" boxes that summarize important facts. The significantly enhanced media package with new online tools makes the learning experience engaging and accessible.

Reviews

"Whether it is the student who has come to believe that politics has always been about the status quo or the student who has given up because average citizens cannot produce real change (a very common bias in my experience), this book finds ways to present a more nuanced view of American politics and show them that there is more to learn about the political landscape... you then have a very good opportunity to seize their attention and get them interested."
