Summary

The Update of this brief, highly affordable Penguin Academic Series book includes discussions about September 11th, the war on terrorism, and the midterm elections. America's New Democracy is part of Longman's highly popular Penguin Academic Series, which, in the tradition of Penguin Publishers, offers accessibly written, elegantly designed, and highly affordable trade-format books by pre-eminent scholars. Carried by a strong narrative voice and brimming with student-relevant examples, America's New Democracy provides a focused treatment of American government, one that challenges the view that government seldom listens to regular citizens. Like its parent text, The New American Democracy by Fiorina and Peterson, this book illustrates popular influence across the political system in defense of a central themethat elections matter more in America's system than they have in the past or than they do in most democracies. The book will generate excitement as readers realize that, in a political market where votes are the main currency, both power and responsibility ultimately rest on their shoulders. This Election Update is the first edition of America's New Democracy with new discussions inserted into the textwithout changing the page numbering. It gives students the most current and accurate portrait of their government with the least amount of disruption to instructors. Since the page numbers don't change, instructors do not have to change their syllabi to use this Update. The currency of the book will help engage students in the text material and the discussions of September 11th will help to answer their questions about the ways in which the attacks have affected our lives and our political system.
