This is a new textbook and was received in perfect condition within the timeframe promised. I like ordering from ecampus because they almost always have exactly what I need and the prices are better than the college bookstore. Plus, I always receive my books quickly.






The Challenge of Democracy Essentials American Government in Global Politics: 4 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

This best-selling American government text is highly acclaimed for the non-ideological framework it uses to explore three themes: freedom, order, and equality as political values; majoritarianism versus pluralism debate; and globalization's effect on American politics. Extensively updated, this edition includes new examples, figures, data, and current discussions.

The authors include balanced coverage of the first two years of the Obama administration, coverage and analysis of the 2010 mid-term election, and a retrospective of the Bush presidency. The Essentials version of the text replaces both the Seventh Edition of the Brief version and the Second Edition of the Student Choice version.

The Eighth Edition can be packaged with Aplia, which offers students automatically graded homework assignments. Organized by chapter, Aplia helps provide students immediate, detailed explanations, and helps them come to class better prepared for discussion. For more on Aplia and other media available with this text, click on Supplements.

"I have long enjoyed the book, particularly its emphasis on value tradeoffs and ideology."- Mikel Wyckoff, Northern Illinois University

"It does the best job of integrating theory throughout all of the textbooks."- John Tuman, University of Nevada - Las Vegas
