Since 1962, this text has served as a guide both to the rich technical language of political science and to the actual operation of the American political system. The AMERICAN POLITICAL DICTIONARY can serve as a supplement to other American government texts or as a study guide for examinations, as the chapters correspond to the organization of most textbooks.
