Summary

For all freshman/sophomore-level courses in American Government.Politics in America uses Harold Laswell's classic definition of politics "Who gets what, when, and how" as a framework for presenting a clear, concise, and stimulating introduction to the American political system. Focusing on the millennial election year, Dye's lively and absorbing narrative examines the struggle for power the participants, the stakes, the processes, and the institutional arena and an abundance of feature boxes explore timely issues and opinions, draw cross-cultural comparisons, and introduce important people. One of the most well known political scientists, Tom Dye has written a balanced, and exceedingly readable text.
